Do all ingredients have to be completely raw and never cooked? For example, yogurt is a cooked ingredient, but might play a supporting role in a dressing. Liquor is the result of a cooking process, too. So is it verboten? And speaking of dressings, does naked literally mean, "not dressed" as in no dressings? Help!! ;o)

AJ, this theme is open to your interpretation. There are no hard and fast rules, only the "guidelines" we've laid out in the contest description. We're looking for creativity!

How lovely a theme as Chez Panisse celebrates its 40th anniversary! Like all the Chez Panisse abd their alums, so many of us have had celebrations of simple, perfect ingredients. Once, at one of Nantucket's best restaurants, everyone in my party got the same thing--simply grilled bluefish and perfect tomatoes, just drizzled with just a bit of olive oil. Memorably great. At another fine dinner, a friend told the restaurant that the best dessert would be "the perfect pear," and they delivered. I don't know how the contest is going to capture this theme, but I'm sure hoping that I'll know it when I see it.

Do condiments count? I mean technically we wouldn't be taking a spoon to a bowl of chutney & scarf it up, would we? just wanted to get Food52's opinion before I thrown in a recipe.

We're leaving the interpretation of "in the raw" up to you guys but check out the contest description (linked above) for inspiration.
