Our cook off started with Becky and I telling Martin our ingredients, we were both making the same salad but in Russia it has two different names so we each said a different one. Out of each of our bags we produced a carrot, a cucumber, a potato, eggs and then we each had a ‘secret weapon’ mine was salt Becky’s was dill and mayo.
After we had had our cook off with Martin ‘helping’ by putting huge amounts of salt and dill into our dishes we asked two of our friends to taste it, we meant taste as in mime eating it but they dived right in and ate a huge mouthful each, one of them then was then nearly sick, but being proper English men they simply grimaced manically then announced that it wasn’t actually that bad and was rather tasty.
What amazed and worried us a little was that one of the teacher’s sons came up and asked if he could try some, we did try to warn him that the ‘salad’ was basically salt, mayo, potato and carrot but he still insisted then more worryingly sat eating the salad while the next group performed. I haven’t heard anything since so I am assuming he is still alive. Inserted into this post is a picture of Becky and I as Babushkas the transformation is really quite scary! If I track down a video of this then I will post it too.
