The weekend was the usual, stay home. It was Superbowl Sunday and John was settled for that while I watched Netflix.
I had ordered a couple of things on Amazon for a friend in the building so we met for a chat.
Monday and were are in a deep freeze. It was minus -13 C ( 9 F) but with the wind chill factor it would feel like minus -20 C ( - 4 F). Didn't go anywhere.
Here is an example post from a local gluten free bakery, Queen St. explaining the various types of gluten free flour and their uses.
I was talking to John about BBC's Masterchef The Professionals 2020 and what one of the contestants had done. I showed him the clip and explained the premise and he was interested so we watched S13E01 together and he was hooked. We've watched 5 episodes together.
It is such a pleasure to watch UK and Australian cooking shows without all the meanness of reality television. Contestants often help each other as witnessed on the Great British Bake Off series.
My favourite part of the show is the Skills Test, where the professionals, Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti demonstrate how to prepare two dishes before the contestants are in the room. The contestants then enter the room are told what to make and have 20-25 minutes to provide the same dish which is then judged. You can learn a lot of tips and ideas in this section.
After they complete the Skills Test they then get a chance redeem themselves with a two course menu of their choice.
Four professional chefs compete and two go home on each episode.
I finally found the rest of Masterchef Australia Season 12, I had watched some episodes last year at the beginning of the pandemic but could never find the rest, now I am a happy camper. This is the season with the new judges and previous contestants competing to win!
We chose Greenland to watch on Saturday night and it was an excellent action/disaster!
I am still watching Breaking Bad and also started The Cable Girls (Spanish) for some lightness. I may or may not go back to Cable Girls.
