The TV cooking show MasterChef has a Mystery Box challenge, where the contestants need to make a dish featuring surprise ingredients they all get in boxes. We chose this as the theme for the dinner on 6th January, where the non-cooking members suggested an ingredient each to go in the Mystery Box: black beans (suggested by Pam), pecans (Andrew), cherries (Jacinta & Franca), and mint (reserve option from Jacinta).


To start the meal, we had balsamic cherry, feta and prosciutto pizza.


The main course was cherry and pecan pesto chicken, with black bean salad.

Palate Cleanser

To cleanse out palates after mains, we had a mint sorbet.


To finish, the dessert was black bean, pecan and cherry brownies, and cherry and pecan pound cake.
