We finally got around to watching the Top Chef finale last night (don't read on if you don't want to know the winner!). I was rooting for Stephanie to win and R was rooting for Richard, so we placed a little bet on it; loser had to cook breakfast this morning, Top Chef style. Let's just say I won, and then I lost.
The challenge? I told R that he had to cook breakfast using 4 ingredients starting with the same letter.
After an hour at the market and another 90 minutes in the kitchen, he served me a curried egg scrambled with criminis, capers, citrus-smoked salmon, caramelized onions and a goat cheese that began with C. It was all served sandwich style on a croissant and with a whole coconut for a drink. He also got a chocolate croissant for dessert. Needless to say, he went a little C crazy. How was it? As they say on Top Chef, he needed to edit his flavors. Curry and goat cheese, ugh. I guess I asked for it.
I have to go clean the kitchen now, it looks like a nuclear bomb exploded in there. What a prize I won :).
