Your Most Embarrassing Cooking or Baking Incident
« on: January 04, 2006, 12:21:36 PM »
Confession is good for the soul so they they say; and so often we do show ourselves most tellingly and truly in our worst moments. As much as I admire you all, my brilliant colleagues, your estimable culinary expertise, doubtless, much more to be known personably - our fallible but lovable humanity. To initiate this thread, a sterling example of personal, recent dopiness:

I was making pizza for my mother in her rather smallish, galley-style kitchen. Although decidedly not arena for extravagance of gesture, presumptuously overconfident, the hubris-tempting theatricality of tossing the dough was irresistible - poor, pathetic, puerile pizzaiolo I.

That lofty last launch, the pizza, cartoonlike, seemingly defying gravity, remarkably not returning to hand; unnerved, upset, upwardly gazing - if not to the gods to resolve my bewilderment, the magic of modern machinery: drooping dejectedly upon the fin of the recently installed, negligibly noticed ceiling fan, the pizza sorrily swinging slowly in the wind.

Well since we are confessing,

A number of years ago, I was baking in the kitchen and my wife and I were talking about "The Naked Chef"
on TV.

As a prank I went into the bathrrom and took my pants off, and only in a shirt and underwear stood in the kitchen
and pretended to be "The Naked Chef" , well doesn't the darn doorbell ring, with my neighbour wanting to
talk to me.  When the doorbell rang, I ran to the bathroom near the kitchen and stayed in there until my wife
could throw me my pants.  She had to hold my neighbour at bay while I quickly threw my pants back on.

I was far from naked, but believe me, it gave some excitement to the day LOL.  Talk about being caught with your pants down ! haha.  I guess that was almost an em-bare-assing experience  ;D

Not a super story, but still funny now when we look back on it.

Pizzamaker, Rib Smoker, HomeBrewer, there's not enough time for a real job.

I can see it all now, but, oi, gosh, I really don't want to see it all now! Superb!

Your writing reminds me of Jean Sheppard (A Christmas Story). :)
