When someone brags about their cooking, our mouths begin to water. Prime Rib? Yum. Crème Brule? Yummier. Imagine being invited to their house for dinner. You salivate over the food expected, wondering what marvels the chef will prepare. What happens if the meal isn’t? What if something seems a bit off? Do you eat the meat anyway, wondering if it was a bit spoiled? Do you grimace at the off-color appearance of the grilled veggies? Your task is to write the story of the chef who isn’t that great. The beginning is with the bragging, the talk of how wonderful he is, with the invitation to a meal. Perhaps formal invitations are sent out only to a select few. Guest bring nothing as the meal will be stupendous! Things go wrong, however. Imagine watching him standing at the barbeque, dropping a piece of chicken on the ground, wiping it off, returning it to the grill. Does his guests eat it? Or shy away? What if the salads sit in the sun? What if the ice waters down the tea? What if the desert melts? Many misadventures can arise. Have fun with this one.
