Name this dish


Tonight my spouse looked over my shoulder and asked “What’s for dinner? I stated “Noodles”. He just smiled at me politely. I imagine this is how the people at Food Network magazine, look each month and how they came up with the idea for the back page “Name that dish”. For those of you not familiar with Food Network magazine, the idea is simple you dream up a clever name for the dish of the month and you could win big ($500, your recipe and photo appearing in the magazine etc.). I got no fun names for this recipe if you have one, I am open to ideas. In the meantime, Bon Appetit!

      Love it ! Sounds like something from the Hungry Games 😉


      • The title in Hunger Games is Mockingjay. Mockingbird is inspired by the novel written by Harper Lee “To kill a mockingbird” to address racial discrimination since many ingredients from different cultures were used in your cooking. Ginger and soba noodles are Asian ingredients while jalapeno and cilantro are used in Latino cooking. I think there is a little Caribbean influence in there too 🙂
