[Sca-cooks] Prayers for recipe timing

Three minutes seems much more reasonable for a soft boiled egg than  
60 seconds in Thorvald's case and 90 seconds in the other case.
But I can't get it to be more than 30 seconds either!
What specific chant are you using to draw it out to a whole minute.
And what do you all think Martino would have used when saying the  
Pater Noster? Is there a version from the mid-to-late 1400's in Italy  
that is longer?


Food is life. May the plenty that graces your table truly be a VAST
