Iron Chef II

Oddly enough, the choice of ingredient for this battle proved a difficult one. I had wanted a winter vegetable, and was fully prepared to go forward with one until our last ingredient was pronounced difficult to work with because of its subtle flavors. Rather than swing to entirely the other extreme (because, let's face it, a little chipotle goes a long way...), I decided upon something I personally love working with. You have once again avoided The Great Pumpkin battle, and have instead moved into the world of aromatics.

The secret ingredient for this battle is:


So far as I know, these should be readily available to you. As I explained in the rules, I will be accepting proposals (via email) as soon as this is posted, and I will be limiting the number of dishes in each course. Plating begins at 2PM on Saturday afternoon, and competitors are encouraged to scale for tasting portions. A selection of beverages will be available should you choose to pair your dish. Suggestions on this front are appreciated.

SPECIAL RULE: No cilantro or corriander may be used in any of your dishes.

I believe that we have six competitors, and I am very much looking forward to seeing how each of you address this challenge. Luck and skill to you all.
