Twitter Recap: What Foods Do You Want to Learn to Cook in 2011?
The new year brings a fresh start and new challenges -- especially in the kitchen. We asked you via Twitter what recipes you wanted to learn to cook this year, and there were a few common themes. Perhaps you've stumbled on some 2011 cooking trends -- could 2011 be the year of Pad Thai? Risotto? Here are a few of our favorite tweets, and some recipes to get started on your culinary goals.
@ kitsunehime21 I want to learn to make risotto and bake red velvet cupcakes!
Who knew risotto would be so popular? Why wouldn't it be -- this rich, velvety dish is fancy enough for a dinner party or holiday, but simple enough for a weeknight meal. And it can be made year-round, flavored with seasonal produce, fish, meat -- whatever your pleasure. (Oh, and @ kitsunehime21, try Paula's Red Velvet Cupcakes!)
@ NibblesbyNora Not sure it will be this year but long time goal is to learn to cook a turkey!
Any other food resolutions out there? What have you resolved to make in the new year?
