On Sunday, I was working at the Market. It was a sunny day and rather quiet. A guy wandered into the stall and started picking up produce. My work colleague said to me "oh my god. That guy is a competitor on MasterChef!" and proceeded to tell me how obsessed she is with the show.
He eventually came up to the register and I served him. He got the usual array of winter warming vegetables and some radishes. I asked him "Hey, what would you do with these guys?" thinking that he would have some brilliant idea that would blow my tiny mind. His response was "Oh you know, I'd slice them thinly on a mandolin (?) and then pop them in a salad."
The look of disappointment on my face must have been obvious. He asked me "Aren't you impressed by that?!" and I said "well, I guess. It seems okay." and he laughed, paid for his vegetables and left.
I'm no masterchef competitor, but even I know you can throw a couple of chopped radishes in a salad. I wanted more, and this season, I seem to be having the exact same problem with the show.
