The Royal Foodie Joust is an awesome monthly peer voted competition that is hosted on
The LeftoverQueen/FoodieBlogroll Forum! It gets better each and every month as the competition gets stiffer as Jousters try to outdo each other each month! It is also one of the friendliest competitions I have ever seen. So please don’t be intimidated to come and join us this month! We don’t bite, unless of course there is real food in our faces.

The only rules for the competition is that each Jouster create one dish and each entry must feature 3 ingredients in common. This competition has been referred to many times as the “Iron Chef” of the Food Blogosphere. Each month’s ingredients are chosen by the previous month’s winner. The winner of each Joust not only wins the Queen’s favor, bragging rights and a cool icon to put on their blog, but is also awarded with a super awesome Royal Foodie Joust apron!

So what are you waiting for? Come over and join us this month!

We decided to change things up a little bit in the new year, based on feedback we have gotten over the past few months on how the Royal Foodie Joust is run. People were having trouble picking just ONE favorite and wished for various categories to vote on.

So we decided to have a vote for 3 different categories: Best Overall, Best Photo and Most Unique Interpretation of the ingredients. The winner for best overall will win a Royal Foodie Joust Apron, and chose the next month’s ingredients. The winners for the Best Photo and Most Unique Interpretation will receive a Royal Foodie Joust Mug! :)

The ingredients for this month were chosen by Billy from A Table For Two who won the December Joust and chose for his ingredients: Mushrooms, Cauliflower and Noodles!

The Winner for the Best Overall Entry goes to Angela of Spinach Tiger with Cauliflower Ravioli with Baby Portobello Mushroom Ragu!!
