Blue Food: A Contest

According to a random site I just found on the web, "blue is an appetite suppressant. Weight loss plans suggest putting your food on a blue plate. Or even better than that, put a blue light in your refrigerator and watch your munchies disappear."

And thus a challenge is born! A challenge with a real prize. What's the prize?


Two tickets to Blue Man Group!

That's right: the people behind Blue Man Group (New York) will give the winner of this contest two tickets to see the show on a date "that works best for them." What a deal!

So what's the challenge?

Make a delicious dish on the theme of "blue food." Does the food need to be blue? Not necessarily, as long as it expresses the theme. I plan to enlist some celebrity judges to pick the winner so this is a great chance to show off your cooking chops to VIPs and win a really cool prize. Entries are due a week from today: Tuesday, February 20th by 11 PM. Please post corresponding pictures to Flickr (or host them elsewhere on the web) and then send me the link at amateurgourmet AT gmail DOT com. Good luck!


Didn't you make a very blue cake awhile back AG? Something from Amanda Hesser's "Cooking for Mr. Latte" perhaps? I was always intrigued by that recipe, maybe I'll have a go at it. Cheers.

Great idea! Ha, wonder what you'll get back!

Ah, here it is...


Now if only the pictures were in place! ;) Good luck on the continuing archiving Adam...

There's a great story about a dinner party Alfred Hitchcock had for friends. He blindfolded them at the dinner table before being served. And when the food was served, the guests removed their blindfolds to discover the food had all been dyed blue. Right up to the martinis.

It was, obviously, a test to see how they'd react.
