My friend Rosie works for TVNZ. A recent team-building exercise took them to the Masterchef NZ soundstage (do they call it that, in TV?), to participate in the Mystery Box Challenge. Basically they're each given a box containing mystery ingredients and... you gotta cook 'em. And you gotta cook 'em well, 'cause Simon Gault (uber-tough MNZ judge, he's sort of the food challenge equivilant of Simon Cowell) was there, watching like the proverbial hawk.
Rose got duck. DUCK. Do you know how hard that is to cook? Well, how hard it is to cook and make it tasty and not dry? Tough. But Rose rose to the occasion (sorry, couldn't help myself) and created an asian-inspired gastronomic saladial-feast!
Cabbage, sliced finely (red or savoy is nice)
