Ignite Week IronChef Define and Inquire-Tuesday

So today I made some fritters. We got this recipe from 5-Ingredient Butternut Squash Fritters |

We learned many things while making the fritters, such as how to flip the fritters or what is shallow frying.

  On website      In real life

It actually tasted pretty good  It wasn’t as bad as it looks,  It actually tasted really good, But we have to improve its looks.

But nothing is perfect so we decided on what we liked and what we disliked.


Crunchy texture

Soft Center


Someplace are a bit burned

Bad shape

Uneven thickness

(Fritters that are too thin taste really burned and salty)

Not enough Garlic

Add some Green Onions


What we disliked will be used to edit our recipe. Tomorrow we are going to make the fritters with the new Recipe.




Ignite Week Create and improve 2019-2018

Today we didn’t do much but prepare for the big day TOMORROW.

We cut the onions, squash, bacon, garlic, ext.

We also prepared the seasoning-what i mean by preparing is calculating how much we need and getting it out.


But this is what we already created and decided to improve.


Bake Squash and blend it more to make it less chunky


Add Garlic

Add Green Onion

Better shape

Consistent thickness

Not Burned(no exposure to roasts)


Add more cilantro

Smaller cut Squash


Ignite week 2018-2019 IronChef Wednesday

So basically, today I recreated the MARK 2 of the butternut squash fritter. But first I created the Butternut squash pasta. I learned that MSG is a chemical that makes things very salty, pun intended. I also learned that your should never ever roast cilantro. I also learned how to shape the fritters into circles. You basically scoop the mixture of squash, so it should look like a ball. Than you put it on the pan and put pressure on it. It would than spread the mixture into a circle. This is what i learned today. I also learned how to design my plate. basically there are 2 types of plates. Round and Long. With long plates your suppose to spread the food out. With round plates you are suppose to design it by building up.


The edited Fritters didn’t taste so different from the non edited. But we manage to learn how to make the fritters into a proper circle. We tried out the smoothie recipe audit sucked. It tasted to natural. Next time we should cook the squash than blend it.
