Welcome back in the new Community challenge!

Looking forward to your answers, let’s create our unique Community cookbook! 👩🍳
I'm the worst cook you all can imagine, so I have one of those robots in the kitchen that help me! I do like to do some barbecues in the summer, and that I can do the minimal stuff!
I like traditional Portuguese food, especially from the northern part of Portugal, where I lived for some 13 years. The most traditional foods/dishes/desserts from Portugal include the ones below:
I must say I love them all!
🤣 Thank you for being honest! As we know robots can really help, not only in the kitchen 😉 🤖
PS: Would to see some pictures from the barbecue 😍
While a robot is of great help, I still don't have a OneAgent to tell me what went wrong in the dish coding 😂😂😂
I can't believe it, but I went through all my photos and haven't gone one of me in the barbecue. Will have to correct this one!
I'm not the most adventurous eater, but really have fallen in love wit Thai🇹🇭 Food. Never enough time to eat all the thing you want to have, no matter how long the vacation is.
There to many great dishes to name them all. One of my favorites, which is pretty simple, is Moo Tod Gratiem. Crispy fried pork with (looooooots) of garlic and sticky rice.
Had to look for quite a while, most of the time it's gone before I can even think of taking a photo 😂
Cooking you say? No, the longer I can go is on breakfast, coffee, eggs, smashed bananas with oat and orange juice, does it count?
I really like to eat, and for this post I will choose one that @AntonioSousa may knows too.
There's the recipe if anyone is interested , https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/feijoada_brazilian_black_bean_stew/
Basically is black beans with pig meat.
I do not eat the meat, I just like the flavor on it, to eat with rice and farofa (tempered salt flour).
My Wife loves to make her Slovak holiday cookies 🇸🇰.
There are tons more that she makes but I'm limited to 10 attachments lol.
She is the Queen of holiday baking - I know my role: clean dishes, get the ingredients out, keep the work space clean!
I really love to cook all day every day and just about anything at this stage. My go to meals are spaghetti bolognese, oven baked chicken wings, thai green curry, rendang, dumplings and goulash. Probably my favorite thing though and also the most recent thing I started to make is homemade ravioli. It's just... so... good... 🤤
Above is mushroom ravioli with a creamy bacon/mushroom sauce.
Above is a more recent trial of blue cheese ravioli with a tomato/onion sauce topped with basil.
In the next coming month I will be hungry all the time, I think. 😅 So many tasty dishes in this challenge that saliva is still flowing 😋
Few shots from me as well. I had to search in my photos for a moment since I don't usually take pictures of the meals I cook. However, I've been able to find one of me baking in a Dynatrace T-Shirt. 😁
Apart from cooking, I make homemade bread from sourdough for more than 12 years.
This challenge made me 🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤!
I am not a good cook but I can follow recipes most of the time 😁. I do enjoy all kind of food cuisines, I am not really big on red meats but some dishes can't be made without! Here are my attempts with a few dishes:
Chicken fajita pasta
Pasta with Salmon
And finally this is from today, a Tripolitanian couscous with meat (beef and chicken) and vegetables.
Of course 😊. I will try to capture it on video next time.
To give it that look you will need to mix one egg yolk with a little bit of milk, then add the sesame and black seeds.
I am not a good cook either,
however I have so many memories about food especially when I was an entrepreneur, me and my friends struggled a lot to earn for our meals everyday. In that journey, I always was craving Pizzas. Especially pizza from Dominos. I use to save money and convince my friends to get me pizza once every month. Later on it got converted to a habit.
I am a vegan and a big foodie who love to try every veggie food on this planet. Maybe one day I will. Till date my favourite food is Pizzaaaaaaaa!!! 😍😍
Big kudos for you Vishruth for sharing this personal food-story, fits perfectly here! By the way... Vegan, you said 🤔 Sounds like you surely have some favorite dishes that need to be shared here 😃
You talk about cooking? here we go.
I love the HOME MADE food and my wife is Amazing, so I learned a lot from her so during her absence I have a little fun.
I show you some dishes:
And especially some cakes that I made myself:
My Mother expert at cooking food!!, This makes me Foodie
I am from South India🇮🇳, During engineering when used to visit my home town I love to eat Bisi Bele Bath which was prepared by My mom😍
I enjoyed every time when I used to feel like eating first time and fell in love with dish again and again!!!
I have one friend that loves traditional spicy Indian dishes. He once took me to a very special Indian restaurant in Lisbon, from some old fellows that came from Goa. He told me expressly to go for an "entry" spice plate. Well, since I like spicy food, I went for a medium one. I believe it was a rate of well, 9.
Then, I tried a very small spoon from his dish. I would rate it as 18, in a scale from 1 to 10 😂 Never imagined there could be something so spicy!!!
I have a memorable experience myself, I once tried to go with "a little spicy" when I was asked how I'd like my food cooked....where I should have said "mild". I ended up leaving the restaurant with a bloody nose 😁.
Bisibele bath in India is one of the best dishes you can eat in southern part. It is cooked with rice and vegetables blended together with perfect spices. It is spicy and when you eat especially when it is hot, it is so yummy that mouth can't stop eating once you start.
There are many delicious dishes in Japan, so I will participate in this challenge. "Ramen", "Yakiniku", "Sushi". It is popular not only with Japanese people but also with foreign tourists visiting Japan.
Well, I do have A LOT of good memories of food... but the vast majority is about me eating, not properly cooking 🙂
I'm the worst person around the kitchen, however... I do feel rather confident when it comes to the backyard!
I can't manage to get anything to taste good if is on the oven or on the stove... my business is playing with fire 🔥
Everything tastes better above a hot, glowing flame of goodness! 😄
I do not have many pictures of it, as it can get rather messy (especially, when moving coal around), but this one from last December made it:
Besides the spicy chorizo, there's six portions of "Secretos de Porco Preto" (literally translated, it means "Black Pig's Secrets" 🤣).
Black Pig is a species that we have a lot here in Portugal, very tasty, and "Secretos" is a portion of meat located below the surface fat, on the back side of the pig.
As you can see, a very fatty meat, very greasy, so... very tasty 😄
As I said, I'm not a chef, so the seasoning is only composed of salt sprinkled above the meat, right after putting it on the grill!
The fire should not be very high, to avoid burning the very end of the surface fat, wasting it.
A low fire also helps to avoid drying out the meat, making eat hard and tasteless.
I enjoy cooking outside with fire a lot, specially in a party occasion, having friends over!
It does require some work to maintain the proper fire, but that's the challenge of it, right? 🙂
The latest (only?) thing I ever cooked for my colleagues , was mulled wine last Christmas.
Although I agree that it isn't food, it took me couple of integrations (, evenings & bottles) to optimize the recipe 🍾🍷🙃
What a beautiful question, I'm already hungry after a full day of dynatrace.
I'm Brazilian, you know, here we have 2 main dishes, which my mother makes wonderfully.
- 1st Barbecue (Anyway)
- 2nd Feijoada (Black beans, farofa, pepper, cracklings and steak)
I love to cook and I prefer risottos and a coca-cola mouth.
obs.: I'm crazy about a Dynatrace t-shirt!!! yes hehehehehehe
When I was growing up, my grandmother made a cornflake crumb chicken dish. She would coat the chicken in olive oil, then roll them in a cornflake and spice mixture. Bake at 350 for an hour or so. It always reminds me of her.
I'm in love with Italian food. I hardly cook anything else besides Italian dishes. One of my very favourites is Spaghetti Poveri. It's pretty basic and simple but tastes super-delicious. It comprises of onions, garlic, anchovies, capers, olives, and roasted breadcrumbs instead of cheese because poor people couldn't afford cheese.
My first ever dish cooked was a pizza at age 12. With dough from scratch. From there I was hooked on cooking. I don‘t even have a favorite cuisine - doesn‘t matter if it‘s Indian, Japanese, French, Mexican… as long as it‘s savory, tasty and satisfies my foodie soul.
What I‘ve been focusing on though in the last years was getting my pitmaster bbq game on. Including buying half a pure breed wagyu ox a few weeks back…
Cooking is one of my passion, I would want Dynatrace to organize a virtual meet event for couple of hour where participants may a dish in their kitchen on live teams or zoom meets. Looking forward for it, meanwhile here is one recipe to try out at home which are simple to cook but makes among the top list in my favorite food.

a) 500 g Chicken drumstick & wings
b) 50 g Yogurt
c) 4 tea spoon Red chilly powder (Need more spicy, its your call)
d) 2 tea spoon coriander powder
