Item 172 – GISHY Cooking

(UP TO 30 SECONDS) As you may know, this year my family unveiled “The Adventurous Eaters Club Cookbook” to help teach people to be curious, healthy eaters — and to help families in disadvantaged situations to get access to healthy food. (100% of the profits from the book go to charities.) But the most important recipe in the book is the recipe for adventure. Create a 30-second video in the style of Buzzfeed “Tasty” cooking videos showing the most adventurous, irreverent recipe you can come up with using AT LEAST 1 food you have never tried before and feed it to a quarantine compadre (or if you’re alone, eat it yourself). End it with a title card that says “GISHY.” Our favorite adventurous cooking videos will win a free copy of “The Adventurous Eaters Club Cookbook”!

Item 107 – Michelin Shish Kebab

One of the best things about summer carnivals is food on a stick, but it’s usually junk food or shish kebabs, and that’s so limiting! Make an upscale 7-course dinner-on-a-stick worthy of a Michelin 4-star restaurant. Every course, from the amuse-bouche to the salad to dessert, should be represented, and it must be beautifully presented. All courses must be served on a single stick.
