Hope everyone is having a fantastic week!
Today brings you Basic Cooking Skills at Babes in Boyland, along with an Anthony Bourdain video along the same lines, and a brand-new excerpt.
Basically, don’t ever do this:
Also, shockingly, I’ve learned that I can cut onions without weeping when I’m wearing my contact lenses, but when I try to cut them wearing no lenses, only my glasses, I turn into a blubbering mess. I’ve had to step away from the kitchen to wipe my eyes!
Speaking of competitive cooking shows, tomorrow brings with it new Masterchef, and the season is off to a rousing start! Last year, Luca prepared a dish for the judges and two out of three judges thought he wasn’t there yet. I was happy to see him re-apply with a daring broccoli rabe ravioli, and he got through on two out of three votes this year. I can’t wait to see how he does, and hope he makes it into the Masterchef kitchen after the first eliminations.
Hope you’re enjoying the blog tour, let me know what you think – I’ll have another tour coming out for the conclusion of the Appetite series (for now), Surfeit for the Senses, in July and your feedback is important to me!
