I have decided to add a new theme to my MCL blog here – the “Fashionably Late” blog topic. I am usually behind the 8 ball in terms of time management, so this new description allows my tardiness to look and sound – well – fashionable.
With that being said, my first ever “Fashionably Late” topic has to deal with the justifiable win by home chef, Luca Manfé, on MasterChef Season 4.
What a gracious and talented winner! I was so impressed with the passion, drive and positive energy he brought to his cooking challenges on MasterChef each week.
He had some failures every now and then but, when the victories came, they were well-earned and deservedly so.
His strong resilient attitude not only impressed the viewers but also his competitive peers. He was exceedingly well-respected by all, including the Type A Judges, Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliott.
We love you, Luca! Your positive and loving attitude and persona
are so refreshing. You are a huge find – a great cook + great person + great work ethic = recipe for success – pun intended!!
Congratulations. I absolutely cannot wait to follow your career and purchase your cookbook! I am Italian, so I hope beyond hope that there are some Italian recipes included in this cookbook.
Hey, fellow cookaholics! Were you happy with Luca’s triumph?
