Food Challenge: POM Party

Last updated on October 29, 2010 by Liza Hawkins

A couple weeks ago, foodbuzz sent a email out notifying their foodie community members of an opportunity. This happens about once a week, and each food related opportunity involves some sort of recipe creation, blog post, photography, etc. challenge. The one from a couple weeks ago came from POM Wonderful and involved a simple question:

“If you were given a crate of pomegranates, how would you use them to host a dinner party?”

I don’t always respond to the opportunities, but this one seemed really cool! Spending only a few moments in thought, I submitted what immediately came to mind in regards to a dinner menu for a small gathering. Guess what? I was picked to be one of the100 across the country to host a dinner party! Soon to be delivered to my front stoop: a case of pomegranates and a party pack to help.
Here’s what I proposed:

Roasted Chicken
with Pomegranate Orange Glaze
Couscous Salad
with Pomegranate Arils & Toasted Almonds
Field Green Salad
Pomegranate Vinaigrette
Lime Pomegranate Cheesecake
with a shortbread crust

The last thing I mentioned was some sort of a drink with pomegranate juice. And I thought it might be fun to make that my November Food Challenge question.
What’s your favorite drink involving pomegranate juice (alcoholic or not)?

Leave me comments on what you favorite pomegranate concoction is, and I’ll create the November Food Challenge poll next week. Cheers!
