I chose to cook because it’s my signature dish that I’ve never received any negative comments about so I thought okay I’ll be the cook. It’s probably one of the easiest things you could cook but that doesn’t mean it’s not nice food.
I think it’s link back to the band and the music we play is slightly tenuous but I didn’t want to try something really fancy that I’d not cooked before so we just tried to figure out a way that it might fit. I was a little disappointed with the finished product – it wasn’t the best I’ve ever cooked the recipe for which I blame my bandmates. Turns out too many cooks spoil the broth after all! Ultimately I think that’s why we didn’t win and to be fair the Sal Paradise guys did do a great job.
I haven’t let it put me off though – I’ve cooked the dish again since and got it perfect so it is a shame that I/we messed it up on the day. Nevermind!
