Deliawhacking. Search Delia Online for ingredients used in only a single recipe. I give you partridge, tongue and radish. Not as easy as it might first appear. More inside...

Some rules, I'd suggest it is only "legal" to search for one ingredient at a time. Players may not scan search results for ideas, although I reckon off-site "research" is OK. Points awarded for the return of 1 recipe only, articles do not apply.

Could one not 'whack' anything with a search facility?
Why pick on Smith?
And also these 'points' you are awarding, how do I know they are real points.

There's only about 900 recipes on the site. Dude, take off your training wheels! Whack Epicurious!

I got one pretty easily with Delia (roe); now I'm going to have to work on Epicurious...

Ho! Got one!

just in case anybody's (epi)curious, the Cooking Information Center describes anthotyro as:
"A goat's or sheep's milk cheese, pale yellow in color. Soft or semi-hard. Delicately sweet flavor. If unavailable, use cottage cheese with a small amount of Feta".

Good lord, that's hard. I gave up on whacking Epicurious when it returned fourteen recipes using pomegranate molasses.

you got one with "ramen", jopreacher, but the others "returned no results", and that's too easy. (Ramen, though - that was good one!)

okra... no results
Wow, that was hard.

The idea is to get one and exactly one result, cmdnc0. No results is easy. Unless your "Wow, that was hard" was not, in fact, meant sarcastically.

Which is actually one of my favorite foods...although, I use my grandmother's recipe, so I can't speak to whether this one would be as good...
