Cook off

I love cooking competition shows.  It is on my bucket list to go to one of the Top Chef events and be able to taste and judge the contestants food.  But, in the meantime, I like practicing.  Five of us decided to have our own cook off.  Each person randomly chose a protein, a vegetable and a spice.  We were to make a meal or dish out of those ingredients and be judged by the group.  We judged on taste and presentation.  Here is the ballet with the scoring guidelines and list of each individual’s 3 items.

Here are the dishes.

Beautiful right?  I did the pork, which was not the judges choice (BOO).  Chicken/cilantro and broccoli took first place.  All the food was great and it was such a fun evening.  I’ll get it next time!
