Horst #15


The chefs had the same fixed time allocation and cooked in turn. Burak was the first to produce his main course. Horst would help him. One of the ways that Horst ‘helped’ Burak was to fuss around him, offering help, but just enough not to irritate him.

Horst praised Burak at every stage of preparation. “Wow! Your dish is going to beat us all!” admitted Horst. He saw his chance when the deep fat fryer was being used. Horst accidentally caught Burak’s foot as he fussed around. Trying to maintain his balance, Burak’s hand slipped into the hot oil.
