If there’s a prize for the saddest-looking meal trying to be posh, this would win it. I mean look at the paleness of this meat! I think it needs a bit more browning on the side and possibly cook the crackling properly – make it a bit more, I don’t know, crackling?
The worst part was, it was a hosted meal. We get quite a few hosted meals from time to time for work, hoteliers treating us so that we’ll promote/sell their property more. I don’t think the chef of this restaurant was up for it though. Maybe he’s overqualified and underpaid and just threw his hands in disgust when we all ordered the same thing and muttered “f*ck this sh*t!” I would let you know where this is but I won’t since it’s a work-related event and also to protect the underpaid chef. One clue though: it’s in one of the restaurants in a fancy hotel which has a great view of the city.
Needless to say, we were all famished after that lunch. Fish and chips anyone?
