In the Bag: Cooking the Month of November!

In the Bag November Logo

We’re going for a change this month with a sweet bag, and I just know you’re going to love it. Take a peek at the goodies inside:


For those new to this event, here’s how it works. Each month we pick 3 ingredients, at least 1 of which is seasonal, for you to make a dish with. All you need to do to enter is to create your dish, then post about it on your blog or website and drop me an email.

Mmmmm….I can’t wait to see what you come up with! My next post should give you some inspiration, as I’ll be posting about Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Chestnut and Chocolate Truffle cake.

Entry Details
Send an email with ‘In the Bag in the subject line to asliceofcherrypie AT yahoo DOT co DOT uk by Friday 30th November with the following information:

  • your name
  • the name of your blog or website
  • a link to your post
  • the name of your dish
  • a picture of your dish

Here are the loose rules – but ultimately remember the objective is to have fun whilst highlighting seasonal food:

1. Participants should attempt to use all the ingredients ‘in the bag’ for that particular month, but one can be left out if necessary. The dish should be based around the seasonal ingredient, rather then just including it as an afterthought.

2. Participants can include any “extra” ingredients that they see fit.

3. Entries should include a link back to the host for that month, and the post should be tagged “In the Bag”.

4. Entries can be written any time during the month, as long as the URL is emailed to that month’s host before the closing date.

5. Particpants from outside of the UK are most welcome to join in and substitute an item from their own local seasonal produce if necessary.

That’s all! Any deviations from the above are at the discretion of the host. Have fun!

‘In The Bag’ is a food event run monthly by ‘A Slice of Cherry Pie’, ‘Real Epicurean’, and ‘Cherry’s English Kitchen’.
