Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

My signature dish would have to be my bolognese sauce which has taken me years of tweaking to get just right plus hide veggies in it so my kids have no idea they are eating them. I made it tonight (I probably make it once a fortnight). I made a double batch so some will go in the freezer for easy meals on those nights when I don't feel up to cooking - it helps avoid calling out for pizza.

This dish also represents my cooking journey from "I can't cook" in my teens to now as a mum of two young kids who loves to cook. I have just been reflecting on the fact that in my uni days I used to make bolognese sauce with a jar from the supermarket, most likely Dolmio pasta sauce, with browned mince...and now I make my sauce with fresh and top ingredients and I could not even contemplate the jar of Dolmio again.

I took a photo and wrote it all up on my blog including the recipe:

Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

A bolognese sauce would have been my signature dish, too. But it went different all the time depending on what I felt like adding to it.
But lately I found out a lot of things about cooking and I'm trying so many new recipes that I don't have a signature dish anymore. Maybe I will get one later.
Today I tried the ceviche from "Jamie's America". It tasted very great. I think I will do it again. I only need to convince others in my family or from my friends to eat fish in such a way (or to eat fish at all).

Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

So interesting to read the two last posts! Such good windows on the idea of the signature dish. I love how you explain how your sauce is perfect for you and the family Jutta, and then Christian explained so well the beginning of the journey when all those signature dishes are just beginning to form! smile

Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

In fact the first time I started cooking when I was still a youth I did Mexican food. This was my first cookbook I bought. Tried something Mexican again today. I ate nearly half of it and then I discovered that the three tomatoes that were supposed to go into the salsa were still lying around untouched. Ups!
Still it was very nice - added them then for the other half of the gorditas.
