    This month's theme is: ALTITUDE

    Time for another OCAU Iron Chef! Take note of the dates:

    Open date: Friday 23rd October 5:00pm
    Close date: Sunday 8st November 24:00 midnight
    Please note the new timeline for entries.


    RULES
    - The theme must be a significant contributiong factor or influence to the whole dish. You may want to include a short sentence or two on how the dish is relevant to the theme (Altitude. Note that any interpretation of the theme is acceptable, as long as it's not illegal in your state.)
    - No entries accepted before or after opening and closing dates.
    - you MUST submit photographs of you preparing the dish as proof that you cooked it. At least four pictures, one of which has your OCAU username on it.
    - make sure that your post complies with the geek food guidelines.

    JUDGING
    As per the previous iron chef, there will be two polls.

    The entrants only poll is open only to people who have submitted entries to OCAU Iron Chef October. At the close of the competition, PM your votes (3 points for first place, 2 points for second place and 1 point for third place) to Ma Baker. You may not vote for yourself. The winner/s of the entrants poll is considered to be the winner of Iron Chef October, and has the right to select the theme ingredient for the next Iron Chef.

    The people's choice poll is open to everyone on OCAU to vote.

    Interesting... there's the obvious like Nepal/Indian/Chinese around the Himalayas and South American places like Peru and Chile. I guess there's plenty more, I'll have to do some research.

    "ALTITUDE"

    Hi all,
    Just wanted to clarify the theme a little. Scon and I picked "ALTITUDE" as a theme rather than an actual ingredient. We want to see how everyone chooses to interpret it. We decided against a specific ingredient so no one would be at a disadvantage due to allergies/not liking it/unable to access the ingredients etc. It doesn't have to be a food grown at a high altitude unless that is the avenue you wish to take. We are after LOTS of creativity here in your interpretations, so good luck, happy cooking, and as mrs dan77 said..."The sky's the limit!!
    Happy Iron Cheffing Everyone!

    And completely off topic - my turkey egg in the incubator has a chip this morning! It's starting to hatch!!! Woohoo!!!!!!!!

    I was more thinking in terms of food that is architecturally tall in this case, however I'm interested to see what people do with the theme regardless of how they interpret the theme.

    I want to see some Jenga like creations!

    Only if it's legal in your state. We cannot be condoning illegal activites... and cooking under the influence is generally a bad idea!

    Its legal to have a certain amount of pot in NSW I think, so I could make high as a kite brownies! :p.

    I wouldn't like to test your theory.
    There is a big difference between legal and decrimanalised...
    Far as I know only South Aussie and ACT have decriminalised small amounts of weed. Other states it's illegal, however the charges arising from being caught with pot differ depending on the quantity/quality etc. ie, possession < trafficking.
    Guess Croweaters could bake hash cookies. :)

    I know it was decriminalised for small amounts in SA - under Neville Wran from memory. They may have criminalised it again.

    It has always been decriminalized. You only get an expiation notice (small fine) for possession of weed and or implements...or....so i heard

    Interesting stuff on the whole weed thing. But not relevant to the thread so i will leave it...

    I like the idea of the theme though. I have something in my head that i might be able to squeeze in. But i am travelling soon after the start date to well after it so if i can do it in the few days before i leave i will enter.

    Should be able to enter this one, I'm having a party on the 24th and I had planned on making a cake, but I guess I could alter it to fit the theme of the competition.
