What would you make with a proposed list of five ingredients?
The Splendid Table's Lynne Rossetto Kasper occasionally challenges us to Stump the Cook by offering her a limited list of ingredients and seeing if she can fashion a recipe out of them. This week's show has the segment, and I got my hands on the ingredient list early:
1. Heirloom tomatoes
2. Italian frying peppers
3. Thai rice noodles (dried)
4. Fresh Shitake mushrooms
5. Four Lamb’s tongues (uncooked)
As the cook you also get to use water, salt & pepper, oil, and up to three other ingredients the individual might have in their kitchen.
