Today we learn to use the kitchen timer. You may have one that looks like this.
Here are the two things you must know if you wish to master the art of cooking with a kitchen timer. Or so a friend has told me.
1) Get a loud one. You won’t hear a quiet timer if you’re in a room far, far away from the kitchen looking a pictures of cats on FacebookTM. The alarm will go off unnoticed. The oven will continue baking, eventually turning your once magnificent creation into charcoal.
2) After setting the timer, it’s absolutely essential to start it going. Having the timer remain at 20:00 will not help you at all.
Try this! And as always, bon appetit.
