Scoochmaroo Challenge: Robot Chef



  Follow Me to hear about all of the Scoochmaroo Challenges.

This Week: Robot Chef 3-Ingredient Challenge

We really want to give away these prizes, and Microplane has graciously approved a deadline extension!

Challenge now runs April 30 - May 13, 2012.

All projects must be published between these dates.


You are not limited to, but must include the following ingredients:

Citrus Fruit
Fresh Herb


Microplane is offering some sweet prizes for the Scoochmaroo Challenge, so we've decided to up the ante and give you a real competition!  Introducing Robot Chef - where you must use all three ingredients in your dish.  

(Get it? it's like Iron Chef but without the trademark infringement, etc. . .)

Since this is the first time we've done this, we're going to go easy on you and not get too specific as we pit chef against chef to see who can come up with the best dish.  The more entries we get, the better the prizes!  

And if you're as grateful (get it? grate-ful) as I am to Microplane for donating these awesome prizes, be sure to Like the Microplane Facebook page, and link them to your recipes too!
