Batali vs. Carmellini
I like matching wits with judges. I try to guess who will win and the number of points that win,
I usually tell my wife what I think during the intermission before the verdict so she knows I am no lying
Well this one was close.
I predicted Batali by +1.
I was right on the mark (mostly I am on target or 1 -3 off either side but rarely more)
Batali was aheadwith taste, Carmellini had better plating (+1) and the last was a tie.
I wish there was Iron chef recipe cookbook.
I think the polenta round cakes with pesto in the middle and then fried sounded good for me to try.
