    This is your challenge for June, and we know you are creative enough to surprise us!

    Take any recipe -- a favourite, a newly discovered one, or even one of your own. Check it out carefully, and then, using basically the same ingredients, create a different-looking dish from it!

    We'd love you to make, if possible, a really good-looking new plate of food! It could be a dessert, a starter, a main ... anything you like. Use your imagination and natural creativity!

    NOTE: You do not have to make the original recipe as well. Simply quote the recipe, chef, and photographer. If necessary explain what you did, and post your beautiful photo!

    Here are two examples:

    This is a classic Caprese Salad, photo by Gemini08:

    This is the same Caprese Salad, deconstructed and reconstructed, photo by Zurie:

    Here is a classic ratatouille, that flavourful stewed mixture of Mediterranean vegetables. Photo by Elly in Canada:

    Here the ratatouille has been deconstructed. Instead of a stovetop stew, the same veggies have been oven-roasted. Photo by Zurie.

    SO PUT YOUR CHEFS' HATS AND APRONS ON, AND START THINKING OUT OF THE BOX! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    sounds a great event... however as I work in a different way (ie not from recipes) I don't think I will be able to help much...

    (I don't look at recipes then go out and buy ingredients for them.. We shop for stuff that look good/fresh etc then make meals based on how we feel at the time and what we have in...)

    Deb, I bet it will be yu I deconstructed Anacia's Strawberry Basil Iced Tea by using her syrup from this recipe to make a strawberry basil martini.

    Goodness, the edit monkey really helped me type that last post. Deb, I bet those roll-up do overs will be yummy. I have enjoyed everyone of your recipes that I have prepared. Anacia's tea was wonderful. I thought it was better than the martini that I made from her strawberry basil syrup. I substituted 2 ounces of vodka for the tea bags.

    Wonderful idea, Deb!! Love it! Both recipes as made should be delicious! icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif Yum, yum!

    It's freezing cold here in Stellenbosch -- whole Western Cape getting masses of rain. Just the day for drooling over food!!

    I'm into "deconstructing" some delicious leftover meats (duck, chicken and pork) and will make a large pie for us for tonight from it. (Unfortunately all the meats came from a great food market originally -- not recipes)

    Deb, that is a festive looking dish. The apricots and cucumber salad sides really complimented your sandwich.

    This sounds like a whole lot of fun. I've got my thinking cap on.

    I deconstructed Greek Pita Pizzas - America's Test Kitchen by DebbyR.

    Photo by cadillacgirl:

    I turned it into a salad. I used a mix of greens with sliced red onion, kalamata olives, and feta cheese. The vinaigrette was made with the hummus, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Then I made croutons with pita bread, brushed with a little of the vinaigrette, some dried parsley, and cheese melted on top.
