Winner of THAI STREET FOOD Cookbook announced
Dear Saucy Readers,
Thank you for all the wonderfully creative resposes to the THAI STREET COOKBOOK competition.
great food varieties and glad to see you thought of colour combos as well as nutritional requirements.
Technically you had two meats - cow and fish - but on an island it was going to be difficult to stop people fishing!
Great ingredients. Reading through your list I wish I was stranded with you!
I like woman who regards popcorn as an essential food on an island.
Dear barking owl,
gotta love a gal who takes along a chicken for 'eggs and conversation'.
A flavoursome and nutritionally well-balanced combination.
The only entrant who thought of substituting their partner for the 'meat' category. She must be hot!
very clever bringing along a pregnant ewe to keep your supplies going.
a delicious array of food choices that would create a variety of dishes.
taking an elephant along for protection and to help reach for bananas and coconuts in the trees made me giggle!
thanks for entering even though you say you never win comps. That took effort. Loved your food choices especially the idea of bringing along a 'live' turducken.
Sadly there can only be one winner... and that is....... Robskee.
As well as observing all the competition rules, Robskee came up with a very creative list of foods. By taking a pregnant ewe with twins (male and female) he had a sheep herd in the making prolonging his food supply.Onions and chilli/capsicums would be great flavour boosters, and taking along a cocao and coffee bush were novel ideas. It's just a pity (or a blessing) that no-one will be able to hear his rendition of 'I will survive!'.
Robskee, can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Australian postal details and
I will pop one very, very, heavy copy of David Thompson's THAT STREET FOOD in the mail for you.
To all other entrants, thanks for taking part and for your wonderfully thoughtful and entertaining responses.
