The first competition

This year, for OneDay I was in the category Top Chef. I was really excited to be in Top Chef, because this is what I wanted to do since last year. For our planning, we had to plan 3 of our dishes. The first dish was a breakfast dish. My group decided to do Eggs Benedict. Our second dish was a chicken parmesan sandwich. Our third dish was cake with deep fried ice cream cookie sandwiches. Ms Wise was also going to give us a mystery ingredient. We would have to adapt to the ingredient in all of our dishes. On the day, the mystery ingredient that our group was randomly assigned was Lemons. We were really excited about this, because lemon was something that we could incorporate in all of our dishes. All of our dishes had one problem. In the first dish, the Hollandaise sauce turned into an omelette. However, we managed to whip it up and turn it back into a sauce. It was really lemony, but it stilled worked. In the second dish, with 60 minutes on the clock, we decided to make a salad. It was really lemony but still worked. For our 3rd dish, in the last 30 minutes I decided to make a merengue, but it didn’t whip in time. It still managed to get on the plate though, and it was fine. The Ice Cream couldn’t deep fry, so we had to serve it cold. I had a really fun time, and we made a video to recap some of it.

My OneDay Project

My OneDay project was to make a dance to the song How Far I’ll Go. I succeeded in creating the dance and performed in front of the group. One of my challenges was, while I was doing a handstand, in the first 30 minutes of OneDay, I hurt my wrist and spent another 10 minutes trying to put weight on it. I might do this project again because dancing is something I’m not really good at, but I wanted to try it and add gymnastics into it. I’ve been doing gymnastics since kindergarten and really enjoy doing it so I decided to do it. I was really happy with what I created and I thought that it was a great day for me.
