    Welcome to the CookingBites Recipe Challenge. Our judge @Wyshiepoo who won the previous challenge has chosen fresh Grapes as the next ingredient. This means unprocessed fresh grapes as the starting point - but don't have to stay whole, they can be pureed, diced or whatever.

    I've now got a longish list of grape ideas. But before anything else I'd like to give an honorary mention to @medtran49's California Chicken Salad which I replicated not long ago - brilliant recipe! Sadly we can't enter recipes already posted but I'm thinking maybe @medtran49 could do a twist on it to make a new recipe. :)

    Grapes with quail is a classic French dish - quail are not in season at the moment (or at least I can't get any) but it has me thinking about variations...

    Well, we have leftover pearl onions so I may do something with those and grapes, and we'll have 2 quail left after tonight's dinner. Actually, I just thought of an idea. :chef:

    That is quite a coincidence. Lucky you! :)

    I'm ready for that! I'm now so immersed in grape ideas that anything seems possible. Thanks for a great Recipe Challenge ingredient @Wyshiepoo.

    Classic fish or chicken Veronique come to mind…

    And my two coq au vin (with pearl onions) ideas I posted recently in another thread.

    ETA: Reposted from another thread here from yesterday.

    Grapes for thought...

    If time permits...

    When we bought the house I'm in at present 30 years ago, the fence line was all covered in grapes, I just wish I'd never killed the vines. Man I could have been making wine all these years. Never gave it a thought 30 years ago.

    I should have thought of asking this before, but... @Wyshiepoo : does this include raisins? They're dried grapes, after all.

    I suspect not but the judge's decision is final! I leave it to @Wyshiepoo to decide.
