Family Lost in the Kitchen

After spending some holiday cooking with the family, I have wondered what it's like for you to watch another member cook and know that you are able to execute it better.

I watched my brother go at a beautifully grilled London Broil with carving knife and fork before he allowed it to rest. I had to say something to him but I knew I was risking an off-handed comment where he calls me something lame like Emeril or Rachel Ray. I hate when my knowledge and advice for cooking and food is confused with gourmet snobbery. They think I'm mimicking Food Network and Top Chef without an ounce of understanding and depth to the matter.

Anyway, whether it be knife skills, cooking technique, or use of ingredients, can you share an instance where a family member has found himself committing acts of deficiency when it comes to food?
