    Thanks for another amazing demo. I have been a big fan iof yours for many years and always look forward to new creations delivered to my in-box. I have tried a few of your techniques, but, because I am not a seasoned cook, i always seems to fall behind your standards of cooking. Even the way you “salting” fingers move, it just dances with the food! I noticed that in the last while (maybe a year or so) that the videos no longer feature your smiling face. The video focuses on the actual hands and table where you do your creations. I wish I still can see your smiling face and curly tops. TFS and looking forward to more creations that I can view and try to simulate procedures.
