3. Everything’s here
It’s Saturday morning. Chris is baking with his sons, Jack and Sam.
Chris: Right, boys. Where’s the recipe gone? I thought I put it here.
Jack: Is this it, Dad?
Chris: That’s the one. Let’s have a look. “Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.” OK, done. “Sift together the flour, icing sugar and cinnamon, and then mix in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.”
Sam: What does “resembles” mean? Chris: It means “looks like”. Right. Does anyone know where we keep the scales?
Jack: They’re here, Dad. Mum put
them out on the worktop ready for us.
Chris: And the sieve?
Jack: Yep, it’s here. Everything’s here: the rolling pin, the pastry cutters and the pie tin. Do we need all these things?
Chris: Yes, I think we do. We’re all set then, aren’t we?
