In no particular order I bring you the boyz of September! Well I guess there is a particular order. It is the order in which I received the entries.
First we have Jim. Jim really embodied the spirit of Men Who Cook by attacking this challenge with gusto and creativity. Plus look how much fun he had. Jim is the partner in crime of Tami Noyes (famed author of American Vegan Kitchen and Vegan Appetite Blog). I had the pleasure of meeting Jim in Chicago this summer. He is a food lover after my own heart and a hell of a lot of fun as you can see by the pictures!
Here is Jim's creation - Smoked Mexican Tofu with Tomato Stuff and Grilled Apple and Jalapeno Relish Chutney Topping Check out this post at Vegan Appetite for more details and descriptions.
The grillin' magician
Bobby Flay - eat your heart out.
Next up is ppknut's honey. He went all rogue in the pantry. He created a soup from what he had on hand. This is awesome. How many of us do this on a regular basis? I bring you I need to go shopping Lentil Noodle Soup! (1)
Here we have Wes's entries. As many of us, he is one busy guy. While he didn't have time to cook up anything this week, he shot me a link to some of the fantastic things he's been making. Check out his flickr set! Holy cow! This Man CAN cook! Seriously folks DONUTS!!! (2)
The next Man Who Can Cook (and also have a lot of fun doing it, I might add) is Quinn. Quinn not only made several things, he got all musical while waiting for his delicious creations to be done.
He made the Banana Rabanada from Vegan Brunch...and this is what he did to keep himself occupied while it was cooking! It was all he could do to wait for the sweet yumminess to hit his lips. OK his description was much more amusing than mine, but somehow I deleted his e-mail before I could quote his awesomeness. Sorry Quinn!
He also got down with this yummy tofu salad sammy and a refreshing cucumber drink.
Was it all delicious? Why yes, yes it was.
Next up is my honey Phat Freddy. Fred is an excellent cook, but he sometimes has a hard time letting go and going for it. He seemed to get over this last night! I woke up at 2am to the most wonderful smells filling the house. It tastes as good as it smells!
I'll share the recipe here with you. I'm going to post it as he wrote it with some little notes of my own. Sorry honey, I am a food control freak.
