Mind Benders - #8

Please ONLY use this thread to post questions or comments.

DO NOT POST ANSWERS HERE
.

I will post the answer in three days.

If you grow impatient or just feel like sharing your answer, PM me. I will update the thread with the names of anyone who has answered correctly.

Here is the question:

The two lines below start with the definition of a word. Add an “r”
in front of the first word to make a new word that matches the
second definition.


A “top-notch specialist” becomes “a contest.”
A “storage place for hops” becomes “to cook or overheat.”.


Props to Scientific American Mind Feb/Mar 2007.

I'm fairly certain that you will be able to decipher the first one.

The second is a bit more difficult, but give it a try, even if you need a dictionary to confirm your answer.
