Wednesday is Guest Chef night
Just introduced Wednesday as being Guest Chef night in our house, and the results are pretty amazing.
The idea came from trying to give my wife a break from the cooking one night in the week. Initially I took to the cooker and rustled up a few tasty (not that I am biased) dishes from a range of cuisines. The idea has now evolved and other members of the family are keen to show of their culinary skills – it has become something of an occasion.
The key benefits are:
- My wife gets a night off cooking
- The Guest Chef gets a chance to show off their skills
- It is a really fun night that everyone enjoys
My turn is next week. So I need to decide which cuisine I will be cooking – quite fancy a noodle dish. Then I need to plan the menu and get the ingredients. If the meal works out then I get a thumbs up – if not it is usually an enjoyable evening.
