If you’d like to know more about our jury of five, please see the post with the first recipe, we introduced our jury here ->

And here are the votes:

Poofah McClaw Mr. Alphons Meower Myratz Catsidy Tito Meowalot Pierre Purry
three stars

Poofah: “OK. This is a bit better. I already started to worry about you. Will give you three points which is the highest you got so far in this challenge of yours. As an extra bonus, I will not piss in your kitchen for a while. There.”

four stars

“I knew, sooner or later, your work will start showing some results. You see how persistence and hard work eventually pay of, my dear. Four points coming up your way, keep up the good work.”

three stars

Myratz: “Look, you may have reached the standards of these sorry excuses for cats, but you are still far away from reaching mine. Let alone that I will ever talk to you. However, I’ll give you three stars, just to keep you rollin’.”

five stars

Tito: “Yeah!” short silence “Yeah! Yeah! Gimme more of this!”

four stars

Pierre: “Well, well, well… now we’re getting somewhere. This is the best meal you prepared so far and I congratulate you. Here goes four well deserved stars.”

The Verdict

Since each vote of the jury members has the same “weight” we will calculate the average. Total stars given was 19 divided by 5, well, average is 3,8.

This is by far the best recipe we prepared in our challenge.

Next time we will come up with something based on sardines. The working title of the next recipe is:

Sardines à la Cat
(well it’s just roasted sardines but we’re preparing them for cats so we called them Sardines à la Cat :))

Until then, stay well!
