“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.” ― Julia Child

Keep on Cooking!

What makes a great chef?
Well, training and technique of course.
Plus a great love of food
A generous personality, and
The ability to invent.

Hot chocolate truffles.
Meltingly addictive,
Hot chocolate truffles,
Hot chocolate truffles,
Balls of creamy chocolate filling that are rolled in fresh crumbs.
Let’s have another piece
As long as the dough is relaxed, it’s ready to roll.
Let’s have another piece!
Ready to roll, ready to roll.

Freshness is essential,
That makes all the difference.
I like to smell something cooking,
It makes me feel at home.


Bring on the roasted potatoes,
Bring on the Montrachet.
This is what good cooking is all about.

I like sour cream cheese filling,
And a sweet topping,
All of that crisp pastry,
You can’t define these in a recipe,
You can only know them,
By knowing how the food should taste.
A blend of oil, fresh lime juice, fresh ginger in fish sauce.

You need some fat in your diet.
Or your body can’t process your vitamins.


Freshness is essential,
That makes all the difference.
I like to smell something cooking,
It makes me feel at home.

Bring on the roasted potatoes,
Bring on the Montrachet.
This is what good cooking is all about!
Cook and cook and keep on cooking, this is the way to live.
Cook and cook and keep on cooking, this is the way to eat.
Bon appétit!

The real test of a good chef,
Is a perfectly roasted chicken,
The lemons, the garlic, the rosemary;
What a treat!

Full, rich, and creamy, suspended in its sauce,
You have to watch it;
Don’t let it cook too long.

Beat it up a little bit, just to soften it,
Fast and tough and rough;
Now let’s show you how you do it.
Beat it up a little bit, just to soften it,
Chop it, fold it, roll it;
Fast and tough and rough.

Freshness is essential,
That makes all the difference.
I like to smell something cooking;
It makes me feel at home.

Bring on the roasted potatoes,
Bring on the Montrachet,
This is what good cooking is all about.
Cook and cook and keep on cooking;
This is the way to live!

Cook and cook and keep on cooking,
Everyone gather around the dinner table.
Cook and cook and keep on cooking; this is the way to live.
Cook and cook and keep on cooking, this is the way to eat.
Bon appétit!
