It is with much excitement that I’m introducing you today to a brand new monthly Food Blogging Event that I’m utterly delighted to be co-hosting with my friend and (almost) neighbour Anneli of Delicieux:
The Four Seasons Food (FSF) Challenge
We’re both more than a tad passionate about seasonality and are inspired by the different dishes that each of the seasons brings so we’re launching our challenge out to you all to join in and have some fun! Each month we’ll be picking a particular theme of seasonal dish or way of eating or cooking.
And each season they’ll be three monthly challenges which we’ll announce to you at the start of each quarter. For the Summer this year they’ll be Picnic Food or Outdoor Nibbles for June, BBQ Dishes & Sides for July and Summer Puddings for August. All you need to do is cook and blog something that fits the theme, or even submit your past recipes. Each month we’ll get a guest judge to award someone a winner and they’ll receive an FSF Winner’s Badge to place on their blog. The badge will link back to a winner’s gallery on both Delicieux and Chez Foti where the winning recipes will all be held for each year. And of course they’ll be a monthly round-up showcasing all your entries too.
Anneli is launching the first event which has the ironic theme this month of Picnic Food or Outdoor Nibbles. Ironic in respect of the dismal incessant rain we’ve been experiencing in these parts, the worst winter/spring/summer I can remember, be that in the UK or France!. But here’s hoping the launch of our challenge shall bring upon us a sea change in the weather, and lots of opportunities for outside dining. And for this inaugural month (and next month!) there’s a prize at stake for the winning recipe – a copy of The Flavour Thesaurus by Niki Segnit!
We hope you like the idea of our new challenge and want to join in. For more information on how it works please head over to my FSF page and for this month’s challenge of Picnic Food or Outdoor Nibbles to Delicieux.
Have fun, get cooking and get outside!
And just in case you’d forgotten what summer looks like, here’s a photo from our house last year…..
