Dave, thanks for the question. Im racking my brain trying to think of a doozy. As you may know with food, sometimes things dont always work as planned. I have done several dishes that were not very well recieved at the Pear.

Maybe the biggest was a maple glazed Ivory Salmon on Ginger Stewed Cabbage. I liked it but I think it was maybe to different for that day of guests.

Oh I also did a hot and sour soup no one would order. Never figured that one out.

In any case, I try and give it my best and most of the time it works out. But, there is always a miss.

Its interesting that you mention Hot and Sour soup -- was it a thick, Chinese style one or a Thai style one?

Do you make a lot of Asian-themed dishes at the restaurant?

Well I do both kinds and variations from time to time. In this instance it was a thick one with hawaiian blue prawns. Again I dont know what about the sound of it didnt sound good to the guests but no one ordered it.

Go figure.
