we’ve only just met.
And I’m interested in your hands…
Cold enough? Are they cold enough for a leap of faith?
We’re making the usual small talk:
life, work, sugar and chocolate
How long have you been studying the magic of the desserts
Oh yes, I have that cookbook in my kitchen, too
covered in flour, butter, eggs and soup!
At the stove now. Things getting warmer.
Temperatures rising. Clean pan. clean sugar, cold water no stirring.
bring to a boil. Quickly now!
And your hands – are they HOT or COLD?
You see, it matters, don’t you realise?
When you finally take the plunge, you WILL understand
it’s about the temperature and about the timing.
118C is the heat and 118C is the moment
Elsewhere egg whites whisking… Can you hear the mixer?
and I know that we’ve only just met.
but your hands, are they cold enough?
Are they cold enough for a leap of faith?
