Have a great time and good luck to all !!!!..

I judged at Snowshoe last year...

If anyone is repping, my only comment would be, please do not allow sweet potato pie tartlets (in what appeared to be a pre-made crust) with chocolate covered cherries and cinnamon sticks to be allowed as a vegetable entry again !!!!!! The sweet potato was probably 2% of the makeup of the entire entry !!!

6th place fish was the closest we got to a call. Damn Q Haven beat me out by 2.8 points!!! :-P

Sorry Mike....

It was a great time. The weather was perfect, bright sunshine and in the 50s. Finished 7th overall cooking solo, pretty happy overall but could have been a lot better.

great day at Okemo Sunday...too bad I can't say the same about the contest!!! Worst in years. They hated everything we made without exception. Hopefully Brooklyn will go better and at least I won't be crazy enough to drive to Vermont after cooking all day!!!
Congrats to those who got called and another great event by the Lunchmeat crowd.

Hey Mike, thanks for the pics, I love to judge but I sure miss the excitement when its call up time.
What did you place with the Rib Eye? I got it at my table. Just wondering how you placed with it.

Hi Ray,
Good to see you the other day!
I placed 10th with that rib eye. It looked good and tasted OK. I was making a veal demi, red wine reduction to put on the steak, but I spilt it!!!! So the taste was a little bland. What was you judge number?

I don't know the judge number, sorry. I don't think they tell us that...
But I do remember that it was lacking some moisture as in sauce. Also it was not all that tender , I looked over at one judge who was testing for tenderness by pulling it apart like brisket. It did not tear all that easy, but is that the true test for steak? I did like the appearance but it lacked robust beef flavor and that something extra.
To bad you spilled the Demi...

I agree I had some tenderness issues. I lost track of time and was getting real close to turn in. I didnt give the steak a chance to rest properly. I cut into it and juice went everywhere! I should have cut them a little thinner as well. Spilling the demi killed me on the flavor side too. Well...at least it looked good!! :-P
