I have been brainstorming spring, all by myself, as I plan a main course for spring for the (The) Dinner Party Collective (TDPC) spring dinner. Currently I am sitting in a country that is in the middle of a 35°C heatwave, which is not conducive to a) spring thoughts b) thinking very much at all – and so I thought why not branch out and get some input from all of you avid eaters and food bloggers out there. So this is a “blogstorm” instead of a brainstorm:
The task for you reader is – list all those things that for you are symbols of spring – colours, scents, flavours, foods, plants, herbs, doesn’t have to be edible I am looking for your associations – might even be bird song, green petals, the neighbours cat lying in the sun – your imagination shall not be limited in any way. I want to take all your inputs and hopefully they will flow into my menu creation.
Ideally write a little post, a story, post a picture, a photo, a drawing, a recipe, whatever you associate with spring. Post the post your on your site, link to this post and blog so I can find your thoughts – go on inspire a menu!
Any inputs that end up being inspiring and being used in the menu will be attributed to the contributing blogger and mentioned either here and I’ll post a link back to you.
Why all this effort you might think, well those of you haven’t heard about the the dinner party collective yet, do go check it out, here. Margot’s brainchild was recently featured on hot off the press too.
