To conceptualize this dish, I incorporated two of the same ingredients offered chefs in the entree round and one ingredient from the dessert round. For more or less winging it, I was pleasantly surprised how well the flavors came together. I've never cooked with any of the three ingredients before—papaya, yucca root or pork rinds. With the help of my fellow Mitt DeLynn Howard in the Brainerd Dispatch kitchen, we brought this surprisingly satisfying, Minced-inspired dish to life.play button

To find out if your pasta is al dente, remove a piece of pasta from the water and run it under cold water. Then take a bite - you'll feel a bit of resistance but not a lot. Then take a look at the inside of the pasta. With shapes such as penne or rigatoni, you'll see a thin ring around the center. Photo by Stacy Zarin Goldberg for The Washington Post.
