Apologies for the delayed posting of Test Kitchen #2...but had to get it out today as...
TONIGHT IS THE BIG DINNER!!!
Test Kitchen #2 went to plan (surprisingly), we even ate on time.
At the moment, the 3 Wise Men + Ralph have taken over the Yee's, 3 Wise Men are in the kitchen and Ralph is on the couch, recovering from a late night munch at KC cafe. Chef C returns almost unrecognizable with his flowing mane of hair. Shaz is slaving away making potstickers for lunch, no doubt working harder than Chef Braz who is getting bashed by Chef C for slicing the duck breast wrong. Chef Chicken also getting bashed for his inability to improvise. Chef C also trying to influence Chef Braz and Chef Chicken to grow their hair long and learn the guitar! Right now Chef Braz has been left in the kitchen alone....is that really a good idea???
6 HOURS TIL KICKOFF...
