In this One Day, I participated in the event “Top Chef”. It was a very fun and entertaining experience, in which we were supposed to make and plan 3 dishes that we would make: brunch, dinner, and dessert, Eggs Benedict, Chicken Parmesan, and Frosted Cake and Cookie Sandwiches, respectively. We were also assigned a mystery ingredient, and we got lucky with an ingredient that you can use to season almost any meal- Lemons. We incorporated lemons into our dishes by seasoning the spinach and using it in the hollandaise sauce, using it in the chicken and the pasta, and dripping it slightly on the cake. All in all, I feel like we did pretty well with all our dishes, and that this was a successful and fun One Day. A video of what we did is below.
What we did during Top-chef was to make three different dishes while incorporating a mystery ingredient into them.
The order of the dishes goes as follows; Brunch, Entrée and Dessert.
For Brunch, we made an Eggs Benedict with a side of Beans, Sausages and Bacon.
Entrée: Chicken Parmesan sandwich with a Rágu Pasta.
For dessert, we made a buttercream cake with an ice-cream glaze. with a dollop of ice-cream and buttercream on the side.
The mystery ingredient that was given to us was Lemons, and we had to incorporate it into every dish that we made. so we added a lemon juice to the hollandaise sauce to make it taste lemony. and for the chicken parm, we incorporated it into the chicken for that hint of lemon. and we also put it into the buttercream as a lemon glaze.
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.
This year for OneDay, I participated in Top Chef. In Top Chef, you are to make 3 meals, a breakfast, entree, and dessert. You are also given a mystery ingredient. In our group, we decided to make Eggs Benedict, chicken parmesan, and cake with an ice cream sandwich. The mystery ingredient that was given to us was lemon. Once we made our dishes i made this video.
