How many of you watch the Food Network TV show called Chopped?
Here, the chefs are challenged to take a mystery basket of ingredients and create tempting concoctions in a really short amount of time. Usually, there are between three and five ingredients and each cook must use all of them.
The ingredients on Chopped can be quite bizarre – from cotton candy to gummy snakes to cuttlefish to duck parts.
But let’s change up the Chopped challenge a little for Shavuot.
What meal can you make – taking however long you like – using all of the Seven Species fruits from Shavuot?
Here are the rules:
- Use all of the ingredients in a single meal, not necessarily in a single dish.
- Add any other ingredients you like.
- Extra points for using other Israeli-grown fruits and veggies (e.g., oranges, avocados, mangoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and cherries).
What can you come up with? Please share your meal suggestion by May 31st in the comments below!
I’ll post the dinner choices on Facebook and let people vote on the menu they like best. And we’ll send a prize to the winner.
Thanks for playing!
