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 the theme of Pomegranate Week and POM Wonderful Dinner Party, here is my third recipe! I love Cornish Hens and I love a good glaze on my chicken or turkey! This glaze is very easy to make and it tastes best when it sits for a little while for the flavors to come together.
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!
Here we are at post #2 of Pomegranate Week 2010!!! When I was selected to be one of the POM Dinner Party Hosts, I was mailed a box of beautiful red pomegranates. I can’t even tell you the excitement that I felt as I opened the box!!!
A few weeks ago I received an email from Foodbuzz about POM Wonderful offering a contest. Needless to say that I immediately inquired and learned that the contest was all about creating a dinner party centered around pomegranates. Well hello!!!! I read the guideline, scratched my head and filled out the preliminary questionnaire to be considered as one of the bloggers participating in the contest. Then I patiently waited to see if I was going to be selected.
