Set your alarm
Just like comedy, dancing or a trapeze act; good cooking is all about timing. Get it right and you’ll be a hero. Get it wrong and it could lead to a rather awkward silence. And possibly hospital. So the next time you take on a tartlet (or any other culinary challenge) don’t trust your intuition, trust a Time-M
That’s ‘M’ for matryoshka, before you ask – named after the famous nesting Russian dolls
, this ivory plastic timer looks great in any kitchen. Simply lift off the larger doll’s top half to expose the timer and nested smaller doll inside. Give the smaller one a twist and it’ll steadily tick round to zero while you calmly create a taste sensation. Whether you then serve it with a well rehearsed joke, body-pop, or forward flip is entirely up to you. Although we’d probably suggest a nice salad.
