Edible ashcloud & volcano dinner - #ashtag

Posted: Sunday, May 16, 2010 | |

In honor of Eyjafjallajökull and the temporarily displaced. While Iceland's volcano disrupted air travel across the globe she also gave rise to something quite benign: at least one song and a collection of short stories. Now she's inspired a dish.

Assembling this feast is surprisingly easy - once you've figured out how to build the ashcloud and rocky mountain sides. Cotton candy makes for tasty ashclouds. Mix squid ink with cream cheese and spread on lavash bread  - inseparable from volcanic rock! (And interestingly the squid ink doesn't really add any flavor). Tabouleh makes for great soil on the sides of the mountain. Hide a Middle Eastern salad under the lavash bread - smoky baba ghanoush, falafel, etc. - and when you eat this, use the rock (i.e. the cream cheese covered lavash bread) instead of pita to make your own scrumptious roll.

We'll get back to you with more details on the how-to shortly.

Last time she erupted (1821) she went on for 2 years so perhaps this dinner will prove itself relevant well into the decade.


Notice the airplane ducking the cloud:)
