Pressure to make the grade. Look good in the eyes of Chef Wang, my instructor. By the way, this is self-imposed pressure. Probably the worse kind. In sports, it's called choking. In culinary we don't call it choking, that's not a good visual, it's called getting lost in the weeds. I mentioned this before in an earlier blog.
So tomorrow, I have another cooking practical. Four dishes, three are relatively easy, to make in like 2 and 1/2 hours; Green Beens and Roasted Red Peppers with Bacon, Rice Pilaf, Glazed Carrots with Parsley and Duchesse Potatoes. I am refusing to put pressure on myself. There, I said it.
Now, no choking!
