“Ignoring the molecular explanations of the phenomena, seeing only this beautiful tarantella of the water, I gently immerse one strand of angel-hair into the fray and watch as minute bubbles embrace all its surfaces. I cook for the sheer joy of observation, grateful beyond words. My first time watching butter foam was momentous, seeing a pan deglazed with a cup of wine was magic. True, these processes had been taking place before me for years, but I hadn’t been able to see them. All the stoves had been over my head.”
