What is the RecipeRelay?
It’s an exercise in food creativity – not a race but a team effort to unlock our culinary imaginations. We hope to show that a recipe isn’t a prescription that needs to be followed exactly - a recipe is a route, delicately outlined, waiting for a cook to shape their own path. We are not professional chefs, we just love cooking and eating food. Let’s Relay!
In place of a baton, team members of the RecipeRelay will pass a recipe back and forth each week, adapting it and pushing it in a new direction at every exchange, watching how it builds and evolves as the weeks go by.
These are the rules:
- Be Inspired! Each recipe must be derived in some way from the previous week’s recipe.
- Be Creative! Team members are required to use at least one ingredient or technique from the previous recipe in any manner they choose.
- Use local and organic ingredients whenever possible.
- Have Fun!
What’s on the menu?
Tuesdays – The RecipeRelay Newsletter delivers seasonal food news far and wide.
Thursdays - Seasons’ Eatings: the baton is passed, a new recipe is posted.
Every other Friday – Local Libations: organic, local and seasonally inspired cocktails.
We hope you enjoy the Relay!
