Horst #21

by

The judges’ votes were secret, but Horst, desperately trying to suppress his anger, knew. He knew from Gerald’s body language, feedback and manner of its delivery that the bumptious Englishman had seen to it that Horst would not win.

The other three judges were astonished by Gerald’s judgements, but, being democratic, and German, they went along with it. A relative unknown and un-Michelin-Starred chef from Hannover was crowned Chef of Chefs, or Chefkoch der Köche in German.

Third place was Horst. He knew who the real Chefkoch was, as one nasty Englisher critic would one day find out!
