When the Dish isn’t perfect, or doesn’t even make sense

Written in


Story of a cook’s life! This dish started out to be a great idea, but when executed, it just DIDN’T MAKE SENSE! Well, the salsa verde and radishes were alright, same with the sous vide leeks. But the carrots, to me, just didn’t fit the dish. Great for aesthetics because of the colour, but to me, the flavour didn’t belong there. It was like the furry kitten hiding in a pile of stuffed animals. Sure it looked nice, but it just didn’t belong.

So as all cooks do, continue to evolve and improve. To constantly pursue the perfect dish knowing fully that it is ever elusive, ever evasive.
