Thanks Sarah………….. I think!

I knew something was out of whack, but when I found out, I felt slightly nauseous.
He’d made such a ballyhoo of his arrival stopping the outside traffic to alight from his limousine and make a grand entrance.

I still see him sitting there going through the motions of degustation, the palaver over the way the dish was described, when the ingredients were no more than  jagged pieces of fruit and peel macerated overnight into a gleimous sloppy mess then decorated with spun sugar and cream.

I had intended to rake Chef over the coals for his audacity, but once my anger had abated, in an obtuse way I found it deserving of the man, a two-faced hypocrite despised by the culinary world.



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
