Today I’m giving away a copy of a neat cookbook called Cooking for Crowds. This book contains an eclectic mix of recipes scaled and proven to please a crowd, whether your version of crowd is 6, 12, 20, or 50. The author is my kind of cook, and features a huge variety of recipes from different countries.
Appetizers include Momos, meat-filled dumplings from Tibet, and Senegalese Soup, a smooth cream of chicken soup with curry that feature apples and celery. (I just might make this tomorrow!)
Main dishes include Pork Vindaloo, a hot Indian curry and Cocido Valenciana, a Spanish version of the New England boiled dinner.
Desserts include Linzertorte (a nut pastry jam tart), Lemon Mousse, and a Nepali Fruit Dahi, which is a fresh fruit and spiced yogurt mixture that features fresh coconut. Yum!
Here’s the recipe for the Senegalese Soup. I’ll add my own photos when I make the dish later today, but the one below is from ifood.tv. I am thinking about adding cubed cooked chicken and macaroni noodles to this recipe after step 2 so it is hearty enough to be a meal.
To enter the drawing, comment below and tell me one meal you are planning to cook this week. I’ll choose a winner later in the week.
