Burning

When I was younger, my brother and I both had the annoying habit of turning the burners up to "high" whenever we saw them set to anything but "low" or "off." I mean, if it takes sixteen minutes to cook on "5," it should only take eight minutes on "high," right? We were just saving everyone time. Our mother, of course, loved that we were so considerate.

You two got shoo'ed out of the kitchen a lot didn't you?

I've heard of chefs who must have grown up in your household, too. They turn up the burners as they walk by just to screw with their students (or make sure they're paying attention). Thankfully, I have not yet had the pleasure of being in any of their classes...
