I'm posting this not because I made it but because I WANT it: spicy laksa from Pok Pok in Portland, Oregon. Emerging from a sickness haze, where boiling water, honey, lemon and ginger plus emergen-C and mushroom pills have been my meals--I think I may have beaten back that bluesy bummer of a cold/flu. But--now I want hot, spicy, yummy, sweet, sour, hot, tangy soup with lots of cold, crunchy condiments. And, I'm way too tired too make it--so I'll gaze upon the pic and dream.
Meanwhile, back at the office (and, yes I missed work too), Calder started testing our BEC challenge entries and came home with some tales. Many of the recipes were awesome and one was insanely delicious he said. Others clever and all inventve. Lo, Sam and Calder also took pictures of all the top tested favorites, filled out rating sheets for each one and I am very excited to post our top favs soon for everyone to vote on.
Now I've only seen the pictures but since I'm in a looking and not eating mode, I can only say--there is one--one alone that has stolen my heart. Word has it from the test kitchen that it was PHENOM. So, stay tuned and we'll get our entries up for everyone to see.
