I’ve mentioned a number of times how obsessed I am with Masterchef Australia. I actually applied to Masterchef Canada (which is quite different) but didn’t get past the interview round. Oh well. The point is, I realized that if I were to ever aspire to any sort of Masterchef dream I would have to learn the basics, sans recipe. I noticed that some people go on the show (not the Australian version) and don’t know a basic pasta or pie dough or cake recipe. Isn’t it obvious that something of that sort is going to come up?
