Paper Chef #40

In case you didn’t hear I WON PAPER CHEF! with my Salmon, Couscous and Blackberries Terrine with Artichoke Mayonnaise last month.

A Winning Dish


And having won, it is my delight to help Magnus host and judge the 40th challenge!

Hang on, what is Paper Chef?
Please do get acquainted with this super fun event and it’s rules here, we would dearly love to have you join us!

The Paper Chef Fairies

As the host I first have to randomly select 4 ingredients from those ingredients nominated: as you can see here I employed 2 of my local resident fairies to help me with this selection process.

The 1st ingredient is…Prosciutto

2nd…Floury Potatoes


Selecting Process

The 4th ingredient was open for me to choose, I asked Ilva if “instead of an ingredient, could I pick a theme?”
she replied “ABSOLUTELY”
and therefore the 4th ingredient/theme is Mother’s Day - something special you would be happy to serve your Mum/Mom on Mother’s Day, being as it is this Sunday!

    To recap the 4 ingredients are:

    Floury Potatoes
    Mother’s Day

So there you go, a fairly general, normal, even easy combination of flavours I think. In fact I almost made the fairies draw again I thought it too common! There can be little excuses this round as I’m sure there are loads of things you can think of to combine these into something delicious for Mum!
Unsure about “floury potatoes”? *see 1st comment below!

Hopefully it’s obvious your delicious Paper Chef entries are not limited to just these 4 ingredients, however you must include all of them somehow in your dish, vegetarian alternatives or seasonally unavailable ingredients can be substituted for similar ones.

Once you have created your entry, post it to your blog and email it to paperchef AT gmail DOT com before midnight on Tuesday, May 12th. Magnus will post a roundup on Paper Chef shortly thereafter and I’ll begin to salivate over the entries, hopefully finding a winner!

Good luck and let the Paper Chef #40 challenge begin!!

  1. All I can say is I cannot take my eyes off the fairies. I absolutely adore the girls:-D & their dresses!! I myself is always hunting for same dresses for my girls.. but with their age difference right now it is kinda hard… it will get better in about 2 years I would think!

    Ignorant me, but what is floury potatoes?

  2. Thank you Soma,
    the dresses are getting a bit short, however my fairies are very reluctant to give them up, haha

    Floury potatoes are baking potatoes, good for mashing, roasting etc. such as Agria, Estima, King Edward, Maris Piper, Desiree
    Waxy potatoes are the opposite, good cold for salads etc. such as Nadine, Kipfler, Charlotte, Maris Peer

  7. Congrats on your win! You deserved it :)
    Ah your girls…pretty enough to eat or dedicate a dessert to them (I think I just gave myself an idea for a future post).

  8. Oh you are so sweet Helen the girls would adore that, thank you!

  10. I was *wondering* what floury potatoes were — had never heard that term, and neither had my Aussie wife. A NZ thing? But I figured you meant non-waxy potatoes, like our Idaho potatoes here in the States. Learn something new every day :)

    Adorable pictures!

  11. Hi Giff,
    no I don’t think it is a NZ thing, I would have thought it as common as saying waxy potatoes. It’s strange how we label things so differently, but yes floury potatoes are the non-waxy ones, good for baking, roasting, mashing. Thanks heaps for your comment!

  17. Your fairies are absolutely adorable! And what wonderful ingredients they picked, I believe that the bucket must have been enchanted. Must participate this time, though I only have once or twice before.

  19. Bron your precious fairies are so adorably pretty!!! If I had fairies like that flitting around my place I would make them cupcakes everyday! :)

  20. hmmm…
    Interesting theme. What to make for mum (& use her as a test bed for a Paper Chef entry)…

  21. In the United states we refer to non-waxy/floury potatoes as starchy potatoes.
