Flying in the face of proverbial cliche, 14 chefs from the Madison Hotel, Albany, Winsconsin, produced what many hotel customers described as "one of the best broths I have ever tasted".
The chefs reportedly spent the entire evening preparing the broth together, with each chef apparently adding, according to themselves "their own special touch".
Head chef, Larry Drummond enthused, "That was the greatest evening I've had since becoming a cook 15 years ago. Initially I thought that with so many of us working together, the broth would be a disaster, but in fact the opposite was the case, it turned out to be unprecedentedly delicious".
He added, "I cannot imagine ever being able to make a broth as unspoilt as that by myself... no siree- it's obvious multiple chefs is the way to go when making broth".
Many of the broth-eating hotel guests were aghast to hear how many cooks had worked together to make the broth, and that the broth had not been severely spoilt as a result.
"it's obvious multiple chefs is the way to go when making broth".
Zach Bridges who was dining at the hotel said, "Let me tell you, if that broth was spoilt then I'd like to fucking see what unspoilt broth tastes like. Seriously though, that broth kicked ass. I still can't believe the amount of cooks that worked on it. 14 was it? [Shaking head]Jesus Christ! Fucking hell. It just goes to show you shouldn't believe every proverb you hear".
Drummond spoke of the perfect harmony himself and his fellow chefs somehow managed to summon in each other in the tight unforgiving Madison Hotel kitchen environment.
He enthused, "Everything ran like clockwork. We all knew who had to boil the water, who had to light the gas, who had to add the meat, who had to add the vegetables etc. Preparation was the key. I tell you, it was like witnessing angels prepare a meal in kitchen heaven".
Chef Marie Wikinson said there was "actually a precise moment when all of us knew we were "on to a winner".
She recalled, "When it came to the boil and the sweet scent of unspoilt broth started perfuming the air we all looked at one another with smug, knowing smiles nodding our heads. Then we all started to laugh and hug each other. It was that kind of moment".
"Preparation was the key. I tell you, it was like witnessing angels prepare a meal in kitchen heaven".
She joked, "Luckily we recovered our composure before allowing the broth to boil over and therefore spoiling it, heh heh. Not that the brilliant chefs at the Madison hotel would ever spoil a broth... oh yeah we rule! Go team!".
The hotel reported today that all 14 chefs will reunite this coming Wednesday to make the exact same broth. Customers are advised to book in advance (earlier the better) and should also be wary of a subsequent price increase on all items in the menu's soup category.
