THE ANNALS OF FECKLESS COOKERY, PART III
No, not me, I finally have the pleasure of presenting the cooking foibles of someone else:
TeaThis is how one scientist does it anyway. Someone has actually collected scientists' best "rituals" for preparing tea or coffee. The only one worth emulating is:
Brew the tea. Find it two hours later, cold. Add sugar, microwave. Remember it two hours later, cold. Microwave again. Repeat until time to go home. Return to work, wash cup, try again. Repeat as necessary.
CoffeePricey perhaps, but the "ritual" has much to recommend it. Also, it works equally well if you change the word "coffee" to "fried calamari."
Buy a plane ticket to anywhere in Italy. Get off the plane, get a coffee anywhere you land, even in the airport.
