I know I know, you have probably done this before, but recently I was asked to pen my funniest kitchen story and I enjoyed it so much I thought others might like to share their stories. Heres mine Larder chef places a pot of sugar on the stove top and heads off over the road to the butcher! She must have gotten into some conversation over there because she didn’t come back in time to save the caramel. Enter the head chef owner AKA the beast. “What’s black and sits on my stove top”! Immediately I avert my eyes and pretend I was never born. Cursing the beast heads for a bowl of hot water from the tap. Unfortunately the day before the hot water temperature was turned up. The beast finds this out just as he reaches the pot and a little of the water touches his fingers. Ahh #!$$*! Having burnt his fingers on the water the beasts body jerks and a little of the water falls into the stinking hot caramel… causing … a jet of steam to shoot up and scold his other hand… tipping the other side of the bowl … as more water splashes into the burnt sugar… a nasty chain reaction occurs… J!#^*! CH+!?*! … Another shoot of stinking hot steam with bits of caramel hits the first hand… he pulls away…and the bowl tumbles down his front with the rest of the water burning his unmentionables… holy m*!?*! of #!! At this stage being the only witness on the scene I was trying not to let my face contort with hysterical laughter and as a result I was half bent over holding my mouth. Laughter is contagious and the beast declared “well you wouldn’t read about it” (censored version) and burst out laughing. * No one was permanently damaged during the events of this story.
