Boy and Dog Eating Pasta

ARE YOU A MASTER OF PASTA?

(Limericks)

By Josie Whitehead

Are You a Master of Pasta?

Are you a master of pasta?
     Do your soufflés keep their good shape?
               Are you getting the hang 
               Of a perfect meringue
     
And know three different fillings for crepes?

Do you really entice with your rice
       
And know Russets from Worcester Permains?
               Does your strawberry surprise 
               Win you a first prize?
      And is *Cava the same as Champagne?

Is your mousse designed to seduce?
     Do your sponge cakes struggle to rise?
               Was your undercooked stew 
               Just a bit hard to chew
     
Whilst your strudel brought tears to the eyes?

But, if your pastry loses its puff
     And your chicken is stringy and tough,
               If you let out a scream 
               As you try to whip cream
     Then you can’t be a cook
ery *buff.

* Cava is Spanish; Champagne is French;
* A buff = enthusiast, expert etc.
