A dud.

Sometimes, you make something good. Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you make an abomination. I got a little bit frustrated on this one:

Pay no mind to the soup. It's cream of heirloom tomato and despite being a little on the boring side, it tasted pretty good. No, my rage goes out to the abomination beside it. It was supposed to be pan-seared chicken with a balsamic vinegar reduction, roasted garlic cloves & peppers, with manchego and a garlic flatbread. In other words, it was a big pile of fail. The reduction turned out crap, the chicken dried out, and the peppers were awful. I got too distracted with attempting to make it look interesting and I made something crappy.

Oh well, at least the soup was tasty.

Really good chefs know you stick with what you know and then build on that. Too much razzle dazzle and look what you get!
