Default Parsley Beds

If you were a judge and were judging a chicken entry would you judge down if when you pulled the thigh from the box it also pulled several pieces of parsley? Because in many cases the parsley will stick to the BBQ sauce I suspect this happens quite frequently. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Good question, we use lettuce because of this. I actually think that all parsley looks better though. Do the judges write down the appearance scores after looking at the box or after they eat?

That was always a concern of mine but I think it happens less then you and I worry it will. I only say this because several "top teams" use a parsley bed and they beat the pants off of everybody. I've gotten to the point I think your leaving points on the table if you don't do it because when the judges see the parsley box they immediately think "now here is a team that knows what they are doing". I have no proof of that but it's a feeling I have.

Before they eat. All boxes are scored on appearance then the food is passed along the table to the judges. I also think the all parsely looks better. We use both methods.

Well, if this is the case then I don't see how they could mark you down. Can they mark you down on taste or texture for parsley sticking to the food? My guess is that they shouldn't, but you never know. I am going to approach the rest of my team about trying all parsley either way.

What would you get marked down for? Taste or tenderness? They can't change their appearance score. I don't worry about it.

The appearence has already been scored as been said above, no you can't change your score, if a piece or two comes with the chicken no big deal. You are already past that part any way.

Good question but the short answer is NO

Worst part of the competition - making parsley beds. I'd rather do dishes. But damn do they look nice.

I judged a couple comps and heard complaints from others around the tables about having to pick the Parsley off before tasting, I literally had to wipe it off a couple entries. But we were reminded not to score it down because of it. I think it looks nice.

Ok, now that that has been answered, lets see some pics of parsley beds. Also, maybe some tricks of making a good looking one if there are any.

When I judge KCBS (or FBA), I evaluate and score the meat "as presented".

So, if there is a bunch of parsley or chopped salad sticking to the entry, that is the way the cook "intended" and I score the taste accordingly.

If they included the salad flavor in their planned flavor profile, they are good to go. If not, well.......

Garnish is optional. You can't be scored down because a judge gets a little salad with his/her chicken. I have never scored down because of it and don't know anyone that has. It's just one of those things that happen.

You can save a ton of money on parsley by buying it by the case from a produce supply house...

If that was only true.
As I said, if the salad affects the taste, "Sorry Charlie".
