  • Gastronomic nightmare

    Hurry, hurry
    Make a slurry
    We need to add more body to the Chicken Curry
    Hurry, quicker, quicker
    Make a roux
    The sole veloute needs to be thicker
    Hurry, quicker, faster, faster
    Wisk it harder or the soufflé batter will become like plaster
    Hurry, quicker, faster, move it, move it
    Get the wellington out of the oven
    Before it turns to dog shh!!

    You know where that was headed
    Gastronomic nightmare
    Inferno kitchen dreaded
    If you want to succeed
    Down the culinary path
    It’s really quite simple
    And can be very fast
    Do what you’re told
    But whatever you do
    Stay away from the chef’s wrath

      Well, for some reason the picture isn't coming through for me - just a little box I don't know how to open. But I was going to say that the poem sounds like the voice of experience - so if that's what's in the picture - then I'd say you nailed it! Nice insight into a place I'll likely never see in person! Thanks TS!

      This poem is about me and wife on the kitchen (neither of us a chef, there is no wrath – we just both end up hungry in the end)! Thank you for the laugh!

      P.S. Pictures do not show for me either.

        Lol! Then indeed, I read a bit too much into my first look. I see the inside of my kitchen daily. . I was imagining a large industrial sort of restaurant kitchen with far more than two to stir the pots!
