My cooking tragedies
I don't have a lot of tragedies, because I always test evey recipe before trying it out on people. One time though, when I was a teenager, I got a cookbook from the library. It had an Indian dish in that I tried. At that time, I knew nothing about INdian food. When I served it, it was terrible, and my father questioned the main ingredient, beef. I didn't know at the time that beef was not an ingredient found in most Indian food.
