Today, I felt like a chef.
When I was cooking, Galen was wondering if I’d put in truffle oil.
But after my first 2 attempts I stopped, because it overpowered the rosemary.
I asked him if he could taste the rosemary during (Fusion Fried Rice) Take 3.
He still did not, and pressed on why I am so adamant about him tasting the rosemary.
So the reason I feel like a chef is because I have a taste in mind that I want to make.
Does a chef need to explain that, need to explain that I want to use an herb to bring out the flavor and aroma? It was a bit frustrating. Partially with him, but partially with myself. Of course I know it usually takes chefs many trial and errors to perfect the dish, but I am at a disadvantage. I don’t have the skills or the knowledge of how the different ingredients work. I suppose I could do more research on that…it’ll be on my list of to-do’s. But regardless… I’ll continue my amateur road of chef-dom as the primary chef in the house.
Let’s see how many takes before my husband is satisfied ((with this dish.)
