Delightful! I enjoyed the humor and the allusion to the TV show (I assume you have the same show that we have - Master Chef, and many similar). Nicely tied off with the ending message too.

Congratulations, Margaret, on your win. It's very much deserved for this wonderful poem. Your poetic ability has shone out again!
This is outstanding. As I read I pictured Gordon Ramsey saying those exact words. I love his shows and your poem reminded me of them. Then you added the last 2 stanzas and the message pushed it to the top. Congratulations. Happy Dance!

Very cleverly written, Margaret. You deserved to win! It takes a clear mind, a clear heart, and great writing ability to put together a poem about SALT and PEPPER, such as you did, and then to bring out a spiritual lesson at the end. CONGRATULATIONS FOR YOUR WIN. Helen

Perfect in every way.

Congratulations on your well deserved 1st place win.

I sure wish my mind could work with a even small measure of your creative genius!

This is an excellent piece, great payoff at the end.

"Th’ astounded judge could make no sound -
He gasped, he choked, he quickly downed
A jug of water- iced!
The dish’s beauty hid a sting:
The over-use of seasoning
And all excessive spice."

This was the best part in my opinion. I do have critique suggestions, but I'll only discuss if author desires.
