I miss the sound of cooking!

Peg | Aug 31, 2010 10:30 AM

Just an observation...
I just got a new kitchen, with an extractor. I've never used an extractor before and I find that I really miss the sound of food cooking (it's a noisy extractor - for technical reasons I had no choice of model, and for layout reasons I do need to use it especially when frying).
I'd never realised before that I used the sounds of frying and boiling as a guide to temperature, and I will have to pay extra attention now when the fan is on as I have lost the audible clues.
