Vocabulary notes (text only) explain key vocabulary and phrases from the interview.

crack them

Take some eggs and crack them into a bowl.

To 'crack' something is to break it.  In this case to break the eggs so that they open.  Notice the following:

  1. Can you crack open these peanuts?
  2. It is difficult to crack open a coconut.

whisk

Whisk the eggs until they're quite high and fluffy.

To 'whisk' something is to stir a liquid really quickly with a special cooking tool.  Notice the following:

  1. Did you whisk the milk and sugar?
  2. It is important to whisk the ingredients really well.

at an angle

You need a small pan with sides that go up at an angle.

If something is 'at an angle' it is not exactly straight up and down, but leaning or off to one side.  Notice the following:

  1. That picture is hanging at an angle.
  2. The back of the chair was at an angle to make it more comfortable.

whipped up

Take the whipped up eggs and pour them into the pan.

If something is 'whipped up' it is mixed quickly for a long time to add air to it.  Notice the following:

  1. The cream was whipped up into small peaks.
  2. Do the butter and sugar need to be whipped up?

flip it over

When most of the egg is cooked, flip it over and cook the other side lightly.

When you 'flip something over' you turn it to the other side.  In cooking we do this so both sides are cooked evenly. Notice the following:

  1. You should flip the towels over so both sides get dry.
  2. Remember to flip the steak over in about 7 minutes.
