Culinary Quest

This will be our 2nd Annual Culinary Quest.  For those who don’t know about it, there is a cooking community that we formed when we became disenfranchised from food.crap.  We used to congregate in the sites forums and we formed real and lasting friendships.  Some were really enterprising and thought up cooking games and contests.  A favorite of many was Zaar World Tour.  That came from when the site was called Recipezaar.  So the forums were shut down and we found each other on Facebook.  Someone brilliant came up with the idea to form our own forums and carry on.  We’ve relocated to Yuku.

The way the Culinary Quest works is that all the players are divided up into teams.  Everyone submits recipes that are representative of the regions we are virtually visiting this year.  Then we cook each other’s recipes, take photos, and write reviews.  We are also able to earn points and complete challenges.  It is a lot of fun.  So, here is where I will be posting recipes that are specifically for the quest.  This year we are visiting Japan, Switzerland, Texas, Tex-Mex, French Canada, and Ireland.  See you there!
