For some reason, my post that was meant for today has not appeared. Luckily for me, I was able to get internet access today for the first time in four days.
As you know, I cooked on Friday for the Gourmet Garden Cook Off. After several problems such as the organisers losing our equipment and having prepared the entire dish with a butter knife, the cooking of my dish pretty much went to plan. I put up a lovely dish and the judges commented on how well it was cooked several times.
On a spit decision, my competitor, Carolyn from Desire Empire was named the victor.
The judges took a lot of time to deliberate on the dishes, and asked me several times what was in my dish. When they announced the winner, they said that unfortunately it came down to how much of the sponsors product was used, and my competitor used more product than me.
I have learned a lot through the experience and will be much better prepared if I ever enter a competition again.
I will be home tomorrow and then blogging can return to its normal pace. Thank you once again for your support and patience over the last week.
