"Welcome back, ladies and gentleman, to the final of the world food competition. Pete, are you excited to be here?"
"I am, Tim. I really am. Do you remember what happened last year…"
"I really do, Pete. Pierre de Pate created the ultimate dish, the cheese monstrosity that was the mac 'n' cheese..."
"Tim, holy cow, do you remember what happened to the Australian judge? They took a bite and their clothes just completely flew off, and they started singing and dancing to the 'Mac' arena." (The "pun"isher strikes again).
"Pete, I know... CURAZY! Can you even imagine what Pierre has brought this year?"
"I know, Tim, I know. Well, let's get back to the action and see what's happening..."
Pierre stares across the room at John Murphey (That's right, he's back! Refer to the naan recipe!). He knew not to take this man lightly. A private eye, of over a hundred cases, his analytical ability for crime was only second to his ability to cook food. Pierre starts madly putting together his ingredients. Chopping, stirring, frying. He had a title to defend and he wasn't about to lose it to some nobody.
John stares carefully at his ingredients. Livers, check. Seasoning check. Cream check. He'd put his heart and soul into this recipe and he knew it had to pay off. He starts madly cooking. Everything is ready, he plates it up and... *Ding* The timer ends.
Pierre walks up to the judges with a confident smile on his face. He puts down three plates all with the same dish on top: spaghetti bolognese. Surprisingly, there is no cheesy goodness mixed through it... The judges each take a bite and smile. Delicious, they think to themselves. Pierre calmly walks back to his cooking station, quietly confident. How could anything top his bolognese! (We all think to ourselves, reading this post, CHEESE PIERRE, CHEESE!!!)
John walks up calmly and places his three dishes in front of the judges. The judges each take a bite. One starts mumbling. Another starts quietly chuckling. The final stares in utter shock. And then… it happens. A light beam strikes down on the three judges and they start floating in the air. “Oh… my… god!!!” They’re transported to a cloud and they’re laughing and frolicking. They’re as happy as children. They smile with joy and then… they’re back. Sitting, staring at John. Chicken liver parfait. Holy cow. So soft, so delicious.
The judges converse for a few seconds and then, “John, is the new world champion!”
Pierre collapses to the ground as he realises, if only I’d added cheese to the Bolognese… if only. John smiles to himself. Another hard day’s work in the life of a private investigator. Time to go home and order himself some butter chicken and naan.
This recipe comes from Sam Sifton. The only difference, we convert it from a pate into a parfait by putting it through a sieve. We just love the cloudy soft texture and that just fantastic taste. Let us know what you think!
