Tonight, the chefs were asked to deconstruct a classic dish. One of them was fish and chips, which happens to be one of Christopher Robin’s favorites, so I found myself trying to imagine how to do it. As we watched, I kept tossing out ideas, and CR finally said, “Try it!” (Subtext: please please please!)
So, on Friday, I’ll give it a shot. I promise to be truthful about the process, and post photos, mistakes, and…perhaps even a successfully delicious. I’m not exactly a whiz with fish, but am very, very good with potatoes. Wish me luck and….check back.

One thought on “Deconstruction Challenge, via Top Chef”
I really didn’t know how to deconstruct a dish until I read Tom Colicchio’s blog on Bravo’s website. Can’t wait to hear how your dish turns out, Barbara. Didn’t Michael V’s Caesar salad look incredible? It was beautiful to look at. I wanted him to win, but Kevin’s Mole was alot more complex so he deserved the win.
