Community Feast

If I project myself to where I will be and what I’ll be doing, it would look something akin to eating at a table like this, with a regular community of like-minded people:

Actually, in my vision, the table is little more rough and ready, but this got me thinking that we don’t have to settle for old wall-papering tables in this projected future.

You, are invited to dinner!

I’ve recently discovered that I’m not as bad at cooking as I thought I was, and that I can present a couple of dishes to be proud of.  However, the idea of catering regularly for omnivores, herbivores, vegetarians, vegans, the ingredient sensitive, ingredient allergic, and the purely fussy seems a little daunting.  So, the concept is that in addition to the dishes I enjoy presenting (cooked with food sensitivity in mind), everyone else brings something to the table too.

There are a few rules though. You can’t pop into Sainsbury or Tesco for a quick solution. Your dish must be made with organic/free-range, unprocessed, locally-sourced produce.  You are particularly encouraged to include your home grown and what you may have foraged in the fields and forests.

What would you bring to the table and why?

Enter your suggestions in the comments, and don’t forget to include a link to your own blog for the recipe, extra information or anything else you feel relevant to the challenge.

If you’re interested in gourmet cooking your weeds, I particularly recommend this site:

  1. What would I bring? Hmmm … Well some eLFonian treats of course! Roasted eLFog with pumpkin and sweet potato swimming in Apple sauce accompanied by tomato and eLFuce salad with just a splash of eLFonian vinegar (anymore and the night could end quickly). With such a dish, a vintage eLFonian Merlot, 1932 (south side of the vineyard – the eLFapes were particularly sweet that year)
