In The Bag: February 2009

in-the-bag-logo-february-09February is a bit of a dull month for food, with the exception of Valentines day – which has already passed us by! In the spirit of cheering us all up, this month’s edition of the seasonal food blogging event “In The Bag” is aimed at creating dishes from ingredients you just have to be happy with.

Bag Contents:

  • Passion Fruit (in the Valentines spirit!)
  • White Chocolate
  • Pomegranate

You know the drill by now. In the style of “Ready Steady Cook” (a UK TV program) we give you a bag of ingredients, and you cook a meal using some or all of them. You can include any other ingredients you like, too.

Entry Details
Make a dish using the ingredients and blog about it then send an email with In the Bag in the subject line to scott AT realepicurean DOT com by Sunday 08th March with the following information:

  • your name
  • a link to your post
  • a picture of your dish


Here are the loose rules – but ultimately remember the objective is to have fun whilst highlighting seasonal food:

  1. Participants should attempt to use all the ingredients in the bag for that particular month, but may leave one out if they prefer. The dish should be based around the seasonal ingredient, with it acting as a central ingredient.
  2. Participants can include any extra ingredients that they see fit.
  3. Entries should include a link back to the host for that month, and the post should be tagged In the Bag.
  4. Entries can be written any time during the month, as long as the URL is emailed to that months host before the closing date.
  5. Participants from outside of the UK are most welcome to join in and substitute an item from their own local seasonal produce if necessary.

In The Bag is a food event run monthly by A Slice of Cherry Pie and Real Epicurean.
