All I was responsible for was taking the notes of the meeting. So what could go wrong.
1) showed up a little later than I would have liked
2) was way in the back so had to strain to hear
3) did not interact with many people–actually I did but not the people whom I thought I would
4) even had to confirm the winners–how sad
I did however get photos of the food-which is all that matters. I like to see what people come up with and how they display things. It may be the best, dish but if it is to messy, I can’t tell what it is, or it seems to be a plain dish, then it changes my perception of how it might taste and then may deter me from even trying it. Sometimes I like things that have familiar ingredients. If I am hungry, which I usually am at these things, I want to eat fast and what I know.
