Hi, Can you say:
"If your dish failed, we can always order out"
If my dish failed I would think my TV wasn't working.
I have a feeling we can/would say "we can order in" as well as/instead of "we can order out". "We can order take-out" works too. In BrE, that's normally "we can get a takeaway".
I don't think you would ever hear "failed" used in that context in AmE.
About the only dish I can think of which is commonly referred to with "succeeded" or "failed" is a soufflé.
