This reminds me of a cherished memory from my time in Korea. At a bar, my coworker ordered nachos (first mistake right there). It came out looking like nachos, seemingly loaded up with cheese, toppings, the works, so he dug in. In place of delicious melty nacho cheese, there was honey mustard, one of the most sacred of Korean condiments. The "guac" was actually some sort of chopped kiwi. I can't remember how the rest of it went, but holy poo poo. Maybe there were at least tomatoes or something. Someone had clearly created it from picture alone.

I'll take this one. It's currently the middle of the night, so it'll have to be tomorrow at the earliest - maybe Monday depending on when I next get to the supermarket.

Sure! Picture totally works. Tek's response proves that hilarity could ensue. Also, thanks for picking one up!

Lots of great suggestions so far. I'll be headed out for ingredients for my first round tomorrow night, with a post up on Sunday.

I would be honored to have a dish named after me. Would prefer it actually get made at least once though. If you've got access to fugu, go for it! I'd probably have gone for ridiculously, over the top spicy instead though.

Gonna go for a twofer here, and give you a main course and a dessert.

For the main course, traditional northern Swedish dish Palt. As far as I know, it's just a name, no translation availible - but there's a southern variant of it whos name would be loosely translated to Body Cake.



For dessert, Klappgröt. Literally, Pet (as in the verb) Porridge.



Attatched images to get you started.

I like your style hombre, but this is no laughing matter. Assault on a police officer. Theft of police property. Illegal possession of a firearm. FIVE counts of attempted murder. That comes to... 29 dollars and 40 cents. Cash, cheque, or credit card?

This is an American name for a regional dish from Europe, so I guess it works for either anglophones who have never heard of it, or people who only know the dish by another name: Pigs in a blanket.


I have no idea how well known that dish is, by that name or any other, and I'm quite curious to see how someone might interpret it.

There's a bakery in San Jose that makes a sweet bread/cookie combination called pan de manos, bread of the hand.

It is deliciously sweet, slightly spicy, and soft. Almost like a cinnamon bun. It is also crumbly, buttery, heavy, and slightly nutty. Like a shortbread cookie.

I’d be interested to see what people think is in a California Burrito.

Well, I don't know what a California burrito is, but I do know what a California roll is and I know what a burrito is so I think I've got this.

So the first thing is the wrap. Obviously these aren't proper Mexican tortillas, but this is a California burrito so I assume we're not aiming for authenticity and I already had these in the house.



Now aside from the seaweed there are three ingredients in a California roll: rice, avocado and crab stick. So we'll obviously need all three of those.



I also assume that every American dish includes ranch dressing, but I don't like ranch so I'm going to use mayonnaise. I bought the fancy Japanese mayonnaise because people go on about how it's so much different and better than normal mayonnaise, but it actually tastes exactly the same.



But this isn't maki, it's a burrito, so it's going to need some salsa. But I don't think we want the normal Mexican style salsa for this particular combination of foods so I'm just going to make something I think will work with these flavours.



Also some cheese.



I may have overfilled it just a little bit.



It's 3pm and I hadn't eaten yet today, so maybe it's just the hunger talking, but that was actually not terrible? Like, not something I'll bother making again, but not something I regret either.

A California burrito is basically a steak burrito with fries instead of rice.

There is a California roll burrito, which is a burrito sized California roll. So it was a reasonable guess. There'd be more veggies in it though. And a mayo-based sauce.
