Abort! Abort! Abort!
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Even the best chefs have horror stories to share, I guess. This one, I'm sure, will be a favorite around the table at the local pub: "Remember when B.O.F. ruined dessert!" These were supposed be baked apples stuffed with cranberries, raisins, and pine nuts. I was gonna serve them after a braised pork tenderloin with onions, mushrooms and brown rice. Instead, people stood over the baking sheet picking at molten sugar and roasted apple skins.
