Today’s post concludes not only Pomegranate Week 2010 but also all the fabulous recipes made for the POM Wonderful Dinner Party. Today I present to you Pomegranate Granita. You will be amazed at how easy it is to make this dessert, you don’t even need an ice-cream maker for it!! When I first started thinking about what type of dessert to make, I knew I wanted to take a traditional Persian dessert and add a little modern twist to it.
Continuing with Pomegranate Week 2010 here is a fabulous rice recipe! For the POM Wonderful Dinner Party I definitely wanted to make a meal that was inspired by Persian flavors. I went through my cookbooks for inspiration and much to my delight I found a recipe that got my creative juices going. What I ended up with was a delicious rice steamed with spices and cilantro topped with pistachios and pomegranates! YUM!
Last Sunday I participated in a Burger Challenger put together by one of the two cooking groups that I belong to. Those of you that follow MPK on Facebook already have heard the buzz. Thank you all for your kind comments! Wow what an exciting that it was!
So finally here it is, a recap of the events and how the burger came together!
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I always look for different ways in which I can serve chicken along with my rice dishes. I have posted a few great chicken recipes here: Braised Chicken Thighs with Bay Leaf, Mitra’s Sunshine Chicken, and Chicken with Sour Cherry Syrup. Cornish Hens, also known as Poussin are yet another option which I love. They are a great alternative to regular sized chicken.
