Today, I was graciously offering a friend an unpaid position as a live-in pastry chef. I still do not know how she resisted this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Somehow, describing the job turned into describing a YouTube channel that I’m ostensibly taking responsibility for. It’s kinda-sortof a joke, but on the other hand, it sounds like a lot of fun too.
The basic premise revolves around an Iron-Chef-like set-up where the names of dishes get randomly generated before we figure out what the dish belonging to that name is… and then cooking it.
And obviously, then eating it.
Apparently the opening credits will feature me biting into a raw onion. Possibly wearing something ornate including a cape. I’m sure we can work something out. For the full effect I probably should speak Klingon or Elvish for the opening credits.
Oh, and there might be a secret ingredient.
I can’t wait to make ice cream based on carrots.
I’m actually already considering ways I could make that work.
I’ll have to take care not to set too ambitious a schedule though. I don’t think that’s the kind of thing I could make work every week. But I think I have some other friends that’d be up for “guest spots”.
Damn… I better go investigate decent web cams.
And I might need a better looking kitchen.
Time to go brain-storming the concept! Stay tuned!
