Who will be the Fourth Doctor… Recipe?
A few years ago, I met the most amazing man. He took me on adventures to far away lands, introduced me to the most interesting characters and really touched me in ways I had never known. His face has changed through the years but his hearts have not.
This will be my third year as a Whoivan with a food blog.
I remember my first post like it was yesterday. (It wasn’t. I don’t have a TARDIS.) I went deep-deep-deep into the pun and wordplay territories. The menu for A Feast for the Doctor consisted of: Travel Through Thyme and Spice with Sky Fish (Baked in Psychic Parchment Paper), Doctor Whoodles (Bow Tie Pasta Salad with Cool Ranch), Swiss CHARDIS (Cooking Hot and Ridiculous Deliciousness in Space) and of course… a Sonic Screwdriver.
After Matt Smith wrapped up, I decided to cook for Capaldi. Dinner for the Twelfth Doctor was a little less extravagant, but still incredible. There was the Burger on the Inside (A Burger Stuffed with English Cheddar, Wrapped in a Rasher of Bacon and Encased in a TARDIS-Blue Pastry Shell), Gallifries (Tossed in Thyme and Smoked Sea Salt) and a strong and captivating cocktail made just like the man himself, the No. 12.
Then, for no reason other than my love for the man, this past Valentine’s Day I made Hello, Sweetie cookies.
With the new season fast approaching, it’s time to break out my sonic skillet and get to work. But this time, I want your help.
This year, I want one of my three years worth of recipes to REGENERATE into a Doctor Who-themed recipe. Please, peruse the Bacon and Legs vault. See what there is to work with. Then come back at me with any of my non-DW recipes, reimagined anew.
You may add a new twist to it. You may simply rename it. You may turn it Scotish.
Just as the Doctor stays the Doctor deep within his core, the recipe must as well.
I will choose my favorite one and create it for the blog for the premiere of Season 9 of Doctor Who. The winner will get proper props in the column, obviously. But more importantly, they will receive a lovely Doctor Who prize pack that includes an ice cube tray, cookie cutters and a TARDIS necklace that matches my own.
All entries must be in by 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, September 6th.
