How do you go from need to passion in the kitchen? Online cookery groups: How I learned to spice up my supper (The Independent, July 14) suggests there is a bit to it like from going on a date to getting in a committed relationship.
The piece showcases Christina McDermott as one example of a passionate Daring Kitchen member.
The basic rules as shared in The Independent article are:
"On the 17th of every month, its members – known as Daring Cooks and Daring Bakers – have access to a forum on the site where a challenge containing one new recipe is posted by an alternating host (who is usually a fellow food blogger or food writer). Each member then creates the recipe, records the process and posts their results on their respective blogs on the same date. Recipes range from the seemingly simple (like risotto and meze platters) to the deviously difficult (such as gingerbread houses and the rather exotic-sounding dobos torta – a Hungarian speciality)."
Members must participate in 8 out of 12 yearly challenges.
