Are you ready for a picnic or potluck? No time for shopping – you need to look in your pantry and come up with a recipe you can make and take to the picnic or potluck.
Could you do it?
Well, in the Good Cook Potluck Pantry Panic Challenge, the members of 37 Cooks were told to imagine that they were invited to a picnic or potluck, and they had to create a dish to take. And, to make it even more challenging, they had to use only the products in their pantry, kitchen, and refrigerator at the time the challenge was announced.
We knew it would be an interesting challenge, but not impossible – the members of 37 Cooks keep well-stocked pantries!
Good Cook, makers of all sorts of kitchen gadgets and bakeware, supplied each of the cooks with a pineapple corer/slicer, a mixing bowl, a spatula, and some flexible chopping mats. Each cook could also choose an optional item – a set of 2 9-inch round cake pans, a 13 x 9-inch nonstick covered cake pan, adessert bar pan, or a 4-cup loaf pan.
And then the fun began, as the cooks brainstormed, cooked, photographed and wrote about their picnic/potluck goodies. If only it could have been a picnic in real life…if only…
