Worst Cooks in America on Food Network fans saw Anne Burrell eliminate our favorite frantic cook Priscilla Harden, after she could not get it together and pull her ribeye with vegetables together for the main dish challenge. Priscilla says she has gained confidence in the kitchen from her experience on the show. Keep reading to hear what else Priscilla shared in her elimination interview!
Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America bid farewell to Priscilla Harden this past week as her frantic kitchen demeanor finally caught up with her and she could not get her act together. Priscilla told Food Network after her elimination that “Being on Worst Cooks in America gave me enough confidence to lose my fears about the notion that I canâ€™t learn how to cook. Although I have a long way to go, I am now inviting people over to our home to eat. Now I have enough confidence to quit saying I donâ€™t like to cook, which allowed me to hide behind the fact that I could not cook! I actually go into the kitchen and experiment with cooking and I find myself having fun and enjoying it as well.”
Priscilla Harden, who desperately wanted to be able to cook for her husband, who in nearly 30 years of marriage has done most of the cooking, says she is finally cooking at home for him and “The first dish I attempted to cook after I was eliminated was a chicken. Although I cut myself while cutting it up, I had fun! I tried cutting up the chicken in the order that we were taught, but I abandoned the procedure along the way when I became confused. Still, I got it done. And, although I did not use a â€œthank you for coming bowl,â€ I used a â€œthank you for coming bag,â€ which aided me in keeping my area clean. Chef Anne would have been proud of me! Furthermore, I have to admit, I ignored Chef Anneâ€™s rule about not using black pepper to season food and it tasted fairly good to me. I remembered to taste the food as I cooked it, and I added more salt as I needed it.” Kudos to Priscilla for continuing to learn at home.
