Is anyone interested modifying the rules to this game to add a higher degree of difficulty making it a bit more complex than pairing two single ingredients in a dish?

How about accumulator rounds: the round starter begins with a pair of ingredients in a named dish as at present, then adds an ingredient for the next person making 3 ingredients. The next person names a dish with those three ingredients then adds another ingredient. The next player has to post a dish with all those four ingredients and then adds another ingredient.

So on and so on until nobody can think up a dish, say, for example with all 10 ingredients that people might have added to.

The person who last posts the dish with the most ingredients becomes the winner of the round and starts the new round.

The winner can either start a completely new round using the last single ingredient posted plus a new one, or, strategically, take away up to half the last round's final ingredients in their winning dish, posting them as a new group of ingredients and so on.

Just a thought to add an extra a bit of dimension :D

Interesting idea ... but I'm a bit concerned that would end up eliminating vegetarians and vegans etc as the omnivores amongst us would probably include animal protein in many recipes?

The benefit of just having two ingredients is that it can swing back and forth between omnivore and veg/vegan in just two or three goes at the most.

you could always start your own game and see if anyone plays.
as suffs says, though, it will end up excluding a few of us plus, how many people make long winded recipes? it'll also sit unplayed for some time while the end of the game is realised.

bread with tomatoes etc in panzanella.

I fail to cook tender medallion pork chops, so buy shoulder chops instead (for meat eaters). Good with creamed leeks especially if chops have the spice rub treatment beforehand.

ZeroCook, as the originator of this thread which I designed with simplicity and inspiration from pairings posted being the key factors, I'll keep quiet to hear what others think 8-)

Trudat.
And no worries, Jeral.

I fail to cook medallion chops up to snuff and buy shoulder chops too! :D

So, leeks. I like braised leeks a lotand also use them as would onions. They're also part of Garbure, lovely French country veg soup that has a couple of confit duck legs in it which are easily subbed or left out. It has leeks, onions, pancetta, carrots, garlic savoy cabbage, quartered turnips in it. It also has canellini beans in it.

Forgot to say that one of the great things about the game as it is is that for me it's often an instant connection! One ingredient immediately sparks another. I'm not sure I'd be up to a more ambitious goal ...

That looks tasty, scullion. Love that you posted the recipe. OH would love.

Is that bean bourguignon from the new bean book, Bea?

Just wanted to comment but will add a domino.

Pissaladiere. Bake in a very hot oven like a pizza on an oblong tray. Thin bread dough base, spread with thinly sliced onions, seasoned with thyme, salt and freshly ground black pepper and fried gently in olive oil until caramelised, topped with black olives preferably oil cured but any will do, criscrossed with thin strips of anchovies.

HI ZeroCook, oddly enough, not, it's from the NYT earlier this year. I'm attaching it as it's a great recipe and hope it'll be legible ...

if that's the one you posted over on wildwood - it is very good. i made it with ordinary mushrooms rather than chestnut ones. with all the other flavours i'm not sure you would notice the difference.

as for cured ham, the only time i can remember having it was pre age eleven when it would have been in a sandwich with bread spread with echo margarine.

Yes, scully, it was. Glad you enjoyed it!

I remember Echo marge - does it still exist??
