Extreme Kitchen- Baking: In The Dark!

For today's culinary lesson, let's kick it up several notches, shall we? A good cook's kitchen should be laid out in such a manner that the chef could perform in the dark, so: light's out! We'll make pastries tonight, perhaps the hardest of all baking, but with a little care and planning, and the Professor's careful tutelage, everything should work out fine. First, arrange all your ingredients and implements in a logical order.

Next, using a very sharp knife, cut up all the fruit. Use band-aids or a napkin to stop any bleeding. (Hint: you can make an effective tourniquet with a dishtowel and two long wooden spoons.) Add dry ingredients together in mixer, don't worry about the beaters, they'll usually come to a stop before severing any fingers.

Now, assemble pastries and put into the preheated oven. Use Aloe Vera for any minor burns. Use 911 for anything bigger. Check the oven occasionally for scorching; when ready to remove they should be lightly browned.

Finally, remove pastries and arrange in an artistic manner. Yours should look something like this:


Yum! That's all for today's show, be sure to tune in next week, when we'll fillet fish, butcher a hog, and and carve pumpkins: In The Dark!
