I want to start off by stating I hate milk. I do not like the smell let alone the taste. This is most likely why I was not huge on the taste of half of this challenge. It did however look beautiful. I think with some tweaking it could be something I would really enjoy. I also wanted to try making a fruit gelee which this challenge forced me to do. The cookies were pretty decent and very simple to make. It also makes me want to start working with Agar-agar. I still drool over these pictures and am going to have to make some interesting creations of my own.

This is my first Daring Cooks Challenge! This month the challenge was to create some form of a cold noodle salad and tempura. Buckwheat noodles were preferred. I took my best stab at making them and will have to revisit them again sometime. I switched to rice noodles because it had that same simple fresh taste to compliment the tempura.
The finished meal! Green bean, crab and sweet potato tempura and rice noodles with Mentsuyu (traditional dipping sauce)
more after the jump!
