Kitchen Challenge Swap Series

For this swap series each swap will address a different food, cooking/baking technique, or style of food/cooking. This series is for kitchen nerds who enjoy to experiment in the kitchen, try new things, and don’t mind if a recipe fails a time or two. So get out your pots, pans, trusty spoon, a kitchen scale (if you have it), and an open mind. Lets have some fun!

This series is also a great way to start a cooking and/or baking journal. I use my baking journal as a way to track recipes I’ve tried, how the recipe turned out, what I’d try next time, and any substitutes or conversions I made. It’s a great tool for food nerds who love to spend time in the kitchen.

This swap’s challenge is: Roux

For this swap we will be exploring recipes that utilize a “roux” in it. A roux is made by cooking flour in a fat such as butter, lard, pan drippings, or ghee. By cooking the flour and fat together it creates a thickening and flavoring agent that is the base for gravies, gumbo, bechamel (white) sauces, stews, and more. It’s even possible to make vegan roux, so don’t be discouraged if you are! I personally use roux to make gravy for pot pies, pasta sauces, and cheese sauces. For this challenge find a recipe that utilizes a roux, make it, document it, and share it as outlined in the swap details below.

Swap Details:

  • Send your partners the recipe you tried. Make sure you include the recipe author and book/blog/website you got the recipe from if applicable.
  • Send a picture of the recipe you made with notes about your experience with the recipe and/or technique. (Picture and notes can be combined on the same page)
  • For example: Would you make this recipe again? What did you enjoy about this recipe? What did you not like about this recipe? Any tips/tricks? Etc.
  • This is a senders choice swap. You do not have to make this recipe if you don’t want to when you receive it if it conflicts with your personal dietary restrictions, however you must rate a 5 if all of the swap requirements are met.
  • This is an international swap, please allow enough time for transit between your respective countries

Swap Requirements:

  • You must have a rating of 4.9800 or higher and I will ban swappers at my own discretion to keep this swap safe.
  • You must electronically send your partners the following: Typed copy of the recipe with recipe URL (if applicable), picture of your finished recipe & at least 3-4 "process" photos, and at least 2 paragraphs of notes about the recipe as laid out in the swap details above. You are of course welcome to write and photograph more!
  • You can send this swap as either an email or attach a file such as a PDF.
  • Make sure you credit the recipe author and cookbook/blog/website you got the recipe from!
  • Communication: If you are going to be late on sending please notify your partners as soon as possible.
  • I will angel this swap if necessary after you have rated your partner(s) a 1.
  • Have any questions? Send me a pm via the SB messaging system or drop a question into the comments box below!

Lets get cookin’!
