Announcing this blog’s very first “I Make The Best Whatever” contest!
1. How To Participate
No purchase necessary. Just post the name of your dish with a short description and an accompanying photo. 8 recipes will be chosen for the showdown. The 8 finalists will then be asked to post the accompanying recipe. Each week will see two recipes battle head to head. Winners (chosen by me and any blog regulars who care to take the time to prepare and taste test the candidates) will advance to the next round of 4. The round of 4 will see another two head to head battles. Winners will be chosen by a panel of hungry judges. The remaining two contestants will face off in a Grand Finale that will be judged by three uber-foodies.
2. Contest Period.
Start posting your recipe names and descriptions now. I’d like to finalize the Elite Eight before I head off to Tokyo (December 6, 2010).
3. Contest Restrictions.
If you can actually make something tasty, you’re free to enter. The contest is open to all residents of the Milky Way galaxy except employees and retirees of J. Mallozzi Ltd. and its affiliates, franchisees, agents, associates, dealers, representatives, advertising and promotional agencies.
No idea yet. But it’s going to be awesome.

Remember, the name of the throwdown is the “I Make the Best Whatever” contest so pick the best of your very best.

Turns out Akemi is quite the cook. The other day, she made gyoza…
The week before that, Akemi also made the most magnificent miso soup I’ve ever had using white miso, sweet potato, sweet onions, green onions, and tofu….
And, sticking with the seafood theme, days before that it was…
By the way, thanks to everyone who has weighed in with their recommendations and – er, what’s the opposite of recommendations…condemnations? – of my recent book purchases.
And you’ve got two more days to post your questions and comments for author Christopher Moore!
