Weigh in on Tournament of Food

OK, food fans.

Which food shall we assess in this year's timed-with-NCAA-basketball Observer Tournament of Food?

Promising Twitter suggestions (@helenschwab) include mac 'n cheese, tacos and grilled cheese sandwiches. Past tourneys have covered wings, pizza, fries, burgers and sandwiches. (And if you don't remember, you can see how those turned out by going to links on the Observer's dining page here.) Comment here, or email me at, and we'll get this party started...

How about barbecue? or has that been done/over done?

Other ideas include Hot dogs, meatloaf, beer, signature drink, iced tea, collard greens.

Cheesesteaks! I also like the barbecue and taco ideas.

Best Side dish with categories for mac-n-cheese, potatoes, rice/risotto/pasta, and vegetables.

Or Best Salad with side salad, cold salads, pasta salads, and entree salads.

Either way, you always win because you get to select the entrants!

Au contraire, A! Readers vote in most of the bracket every year, and I reserve a few spots for places I think are terrific but not well-known enough to be voted in. (Just to be clear.)
Thanks for the ideas!
