Cheffone

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: Chef Phone

Sentence: Patsy mixed together egg yolks, lemon juice and sugar. She stirred them gently over simmering water until thick and creamy. Patsy carefully combined grated lemon zest and softened gelatin with them. Patsy removed this creamy thick lemon custard from the heat so it could cool. She whipped egg whites into stiff peaks and sweetened them with a little sugar. She folded and feathered the egg whites into the creamy custard, poured it into a graham cracker pie crust shell, then let it chill well. Since Patsy got this recipe from her cheffone, used her cheffone as the timer for the simmering and the chilling, used the cheffone to listen to music while the lemon pie chilled, then took a cheffone picture of it ... Patsy called it her cheffone pie.

Etymology: CHEF, PHONE, as well as a play on Chiffon Pie. CHEF - a professional cook. PHONE - an electronic apparatus containing a receiver and transmitter that is connected to a telecommunications system, and in many cell phones, is connected to other networks of information, and can even take pictures. Chiffon Pie - custard pies that have been made lighter and airier with whipped egg whites; a dessert.

Thought this T. S. Elliot quote was worth sharing: "For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning."
