I started this with one mission: to bring a game power up into real life. With that in mind, I started going through my memory for different games, and decided to go with Mario Bros. So you got your mushrooms, flowers and etc, but I didn't want to make food LOOK like it, but actually use the SAME ingredient as the power ups.
And thus, I'll be cooking the red, 1up, and poison mushroom with REAL mushrooms, and the fire flower with REAL flowers (artichoke). Artichoke actually is the flower of the plant.
The dish is consisted of:
- marinated artichoke stuffed with hot italian sausage mix (fire flower)
- fried mushroom with basic tomato sauce (red mushroom)
- fried mushroom with creamy spinach sauce (1up mushroom)
- fried mushroom with cuttlefish ink sauce (poison mushroom)
Step 1: Prep time
This is going to be pretty intense to make so this is the schedule:
1. marinate artichoke
2. prepare stuffing
3. prepare sauces
4. cook artichoke
5. fry mushrooms
6. bake artichoke
7. put the dish together
I'll list the ingredients as we go, so I would suggest reading through the instructions before starting.
