It’s always hard to remember new words and idioms. Perfect pronunciation is much harder. My first year in Canada, I often explained the meaning of words instead of saying them.
“I want to watch fuck show.” I once told Joe while casually loading the dishwasher.
“Huh? What the hell had you been watching? I hadn’t ordered the Adult package from my local satellite provider.” Joe said.
Of course I didn’t follow what he said. I kept trying “These scallops are rooooooow!” in an English accent.
“Oh, That is Hell’s Kitchen.”
Anyway, I’m a huge fan of Gordon Ramsay and his show. This weekend I challenged myself to make his signature dish, Beef Wellington.
Joe: “You don’t have enough duck cell.”
Ake: “I don’t use duck. This is seranno ham.”
Joe: “Not duck cell. Mushroom duxelle.”
Carefully roll. It’s like a giant sushi roll.
Actually I bought puff pastry from WholeFoods. :P
I realized that I forgot to add thyme in the duxelle so I put them on my puff pastry.
A bit of decoration ♡
