Gisela: That smells wonderful!

Danny: This is my family’s recipe. The secret is in the combination of seasonings we use.

Gisela: I can see that. You must have 30 different dried and fresh herbs and spices on this counter.

Danny: To get a bold flavor, we use a lot of aromatic seeds, barks, and roots.

Gisela: How much do you put in of each one?

Danny: Precise measurements aren’t really necessary. I put in a pinch of this and a dash of that. I add them to taste.

Gisela: So getting the recipe wouldn’t do me any good, huh?

Danny: I’m afraid not. I learned how to make this in my mother’s kitchen.

Gisela: Would you teach me if I volunteered to be your apprentice, doing all of your prep work?

Danny: That depends.

Gisela: On what?

Danny: On how quick you are with this potato peeler.
