Easy Entertaining: Do You Have a Signature Dish?

Chefs have them, so why not us?! Maybe it's the dish that everyone always runs for at potluck dinners or the dessert that you've slowly perfected over the years. Maybe it was your mother or grandmother's signature dish before you. What one dish do you feel is yours and yours alone?

Part of the Kitchn Cure is about feeling more at home in your kitchen and comfortable in your role as a cook. Thinking about your signature dish is a way of discovering yourself as a home cook. It's a dish that says something about you and your love of cooking.

It's also that dish that you feel confident preparing and serving no matter what! You know its nuances, you know how it should taste, you know that it will get a smile out of anyone who eats it. You feel proud that its yours and you made it. And you should!

Please share your most special dish and tell us a little about how it came to be!
