Food Faux-tale: Forging the Perfect Meal

Man receives dirty pots and pans along with his food.
Thanks for helping me fake out the family!
So your mother-in-law is coming to dinner and you can’t cook. The easiest thing is to order in. But what if you really want to impress her, want to make her believe you’ve cooked it yourself?  Well, then, what you need is this new service from . . . today announced a service called ‘pretend you cooked’ that allows customers to pretend they have slaved away at a hot stove more convincingly by delivering dirty pans alongside the food. Cooked by a professional chef and delivered to your door, Housebites main courses cost on average between £10 and £12, and now for an additional £5, customers can request the pans used to cook them for added authenticity.

I am not even sure what to say.

    Wow. 5 pounds for the dirty pots. I will let you borrow my dirty pans for free, if you clean them 🙂

    Let’s hope their guests don’t ask for the recipe!

    LOL, Cindy, I never thought of that. I guess you have to go “family secret.”
