Blue Food Contest Extended (& Judge Announced)

I’ve received several creative entries for my Blue Food Contest, a contest with a real genuine prize: two tickets to Blue Man Group (NY) on a date of your choosing. Now we have ourselves a judge, a notable one at that: the co-author of the French Laundry Cookbook, author of “The Soul of a Chef” (and many other notable books) and proprietor of the ever-controversial, Michael Ruhlman.

Because we have ourselves a judge of such stature, I’d like to add an extra week to the contest. In case you missed the contest prompt, here’s your challenge: create a dish on the theme of “blue food” that attempts to make the most appetite-suprressing color actually appetizing. E-mail your entries (with pictures hosted on Flickr, please) to amateurgourmet AT gmail DOT com. Please have them in by next Wednesday, the 28th, at 11 PM. Good luck!
