Your entries for our Facebook Kitchen Disaster contest were hilarious. You risked public embarrassment to share stories of drunken grilling, liver stir fry, “potatoes au mucilage,” meatloaf made with all-bran, duck a la space heater, spinach bread sans spinach, tuna whiskey casserole and much much more.
In fact, we’re adding a 4th winner based on one of our own favorites. We loved the story about the terrible “Hawaiian Chicken” and the good sport mom who endured her children’s cheers when she dropped the copious leftovers – and continued to take the ribbing for years afterwards. Even though she’s no longer with us, any mom who turned misfortune into a loving lifelong memory deserves to win her child a Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook.
So our FOUR winners (three chosen by number of “likes”, and one by us) are:
Alan Bennett Ilagan, who mistook cilantro for parsley in Thanksgiving turkey stuffing.
Desmond Wilson, whose lopsided cake was his first introduction to his partner’s family.
Vicki Vik-Cook, who forgot to remove the plastic from her canned ham.
And Sandi Gulbranson Frenke, who’s mom still can’t live down “Hawaiian Chicken.”
If you’re one of the winners, please contact us at email@example.com with shipping instructions, and the name for whom you’d like us to inscribe your Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook.
