"Double-boiler", or “Bain-Marie” is an expression influenced by the process of the same name used in cooking, where something is heated inside a container that is inside another one filled with boiling water. The invention of this method was popularly attributed to Mary the Jew (300 BC), a former alchemist, although the method has been used since Ancient Greek. As this is a slow heating process, the expression is used to describe something that is waiting for a result or conclusion. GÍRIA E TRADIÇÃO - In this collection we find popular Portuguese expressions, such an important part of the immaterial heritage that is derived from language. Building blocks of Portuguese identity, this informal vocabulary has been transmitted from generation upon generation, populating the Portuguese phonetic imaginary with analogies and metaphors which reflect the Portuguese culture and sense of humor. From Portugal to the whole world.
