Food : The Spoons Have It
The Spoons Have It
One day during cooking class, the teacher, Mrs. Jones, was extolling
her secrets for preparing perfect sauces. When she ordered the
class to the stoves to prepare their assignments, she said, "Don't
forget to use wooden spoons."
As Jack stirred his sauce, he contemplated the mystery of the wooden
spoon and decided it must have something to do with heat conduction. He
approached Mrs. Jones to test his theory. "Why wooden spoons?" he
"Because," she replied, "if I had to sit here listening to all your
metal spoons banging against metal pots, I'd go nuts."
