22 classic food fails that could happen to any of us!

Cooking comes from the heart... Serving up a delicious meal for our friends and family is a pleasure that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  But not everyone is blessed with culinary skills, despite their desire to treat their entourage to a mouth-watering treat. Sometimes it's from lack of experience - we've all had our culinary disasters - or it may be because we don't pay attention and end up with a catastrophe on a plate.

Here are 22 people who were hoping to show off their cooking abilities only for it to all go horribly wrong.
