Pete is a jolly guy and has opened his kitchen for the public. Or at least sometimes if he hasn’t friends on visit or too busy with other things to have opened.
But will chose to rank Pinch of Salt as a restaurant. Not as a private person with a good mood and a hobby.
The story telling seems more important than the food itself. Sad with this focus, since I think Pete has potential for more.
Nothing wrong with the food. But never reached the height of great or extraordinary. It was ordinary. Ok something wrong with some of the food that was sold as experiments (e.g. if a creme brûlée gets 10-15 degrees to little and is a sauce, it doesn’t help to add a French toast in small pieces and “sell” it is something special).
To master a trade it is not enough with the idea and wishful thinking. What is needed is hard work and time to reach a consistent level.
Most hobby chefs will be able to cook at this level. But it is different to be at a friend that can cook where all says “gosh, this is great” and then opening as a restaurant. Keep that in mind if you want to try pinch of salt.
3 stars since Pete is a nice guy with a good mood.
