Masterchef

The great chef stepped forward and stooped to inspect the dish presented by the seventh contestant.

“Very well presented,” he pronounced. “In the French style, as one would expect.”

With a silver knife and fork he carved a sliver of the meat, which he popped into his mouth before chewing furiously. His face was a picture of concentration.

“Ah! No no,” he frowned. “This will never do! I am afraid that your liver is far too overcooked, and criminally under-seasoned. Its very disappointing.”

Crestfallen, the pale young cook limped from the room. The bandage at his side began to seep.
