Re: The definition of I can cook
I like where this is going!
Recently we hired a cook in Greece on our boat. I was tired of cooking the same old stuff (SOS). SOS has many variances.
We had this AWSOME CIA trained chef from France, her mother (we later found out) owned a restaurant in Corfu.
Here is where it gets interesting:
it was a full three/four days until we realized...there was no meat. She cooked so well that we did not even realize we were doing Vegan! She knew people on each island that had "stuff". she would take the "stuff" and create "MAGIC". Linda and I had the best boat cuisine that I have ever had. She had a 1000 dollar budget for 4/10 days, she told us she spent ~350 bucks...YEP, keep the tip.
She was a MASTER! Eggplant mousse, layered with tomato, covered w/béchamel. with texture of a cloud!
