Subject: Baker's retort
Date: 1992-04-07 22:25:53 GMT
As a professional baker and chef, I find your analogy of using extracts
to be rather infuriating. I use extracts in my work every day. Am I less
of a baker because I don't soak vanilla beans in alcohol to extract the
essence? Am I less of a baker because I use mixes instead of gathering
together flour, leavening agents, sugar, etc., which is what a mix is
made of in the first place?
In the future, I suggest that you refer yourself to a cook before making
such a weak argument, thus setting up a straw man to be knocked down.
I also find your "women/cooks" to be a fundamentally insulting phrase.
Not all women are cooks, nor are all cooks women, and I would estimate
that neither party agrees with your conjectures.
