My friend, Howard, just called. He was working on the One-Handed Pie Crust (see earlier post www.bravadocooking.com/2011/09/23/315/), and his girlfriend was in the kitchen with him. At first he used his free hand to hold a glass of wine as instructed in our post, but then he decided on the other option of putting the free arm around his significant other while continuing to work the dough. We have spoken before about Bravado cooking skills making women swoon and I am not sure if this is what happened or if he was unclear on the concept of what he was kneading. In any case, there was apparently flour and butter everywhere, but the dough never got made. I was unable to get any more information if anything was “made”, but I would say that the writing is probably on the wall. In any case, let this be a warning to all – the kitchen is meant for cooking and you should use that free hand only for wine.
All of this reminds me of that famous kitchen scene in the 1981 version of “The Postman Always Rings Twice” with Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange. Luckily, YouTube has it – go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgMmLrxbLc8 and watch at your own risk.
