  1. "a guimpe, you see, is - "
    "hold on, i can't hear you," said the nun.
    "a guimpe -" he raised his voice.
    "all i can here is something about a wimp, a vamp." her head now rising from the habit.
    "you really must wear one, sister mary-clotilda."
    wim, wam, who cares. she ran out, leaving her cell to join the others, her bosom heaving heavily, muttering "vimp, wamp, what a bunch of nonsense."
    she joined the others and didn't notice their strange glances as her voice and arms reached heavenward, her chocolate skin proudly gleaming in the sun where it met her unclothed throat.

  2. This is a recipe for "Pets de Nonnes", literally "Nuns' Farts". Don't let their name fool you. They are delicious whether you're wearing a guimpe or not. :)

    1/2cup butter - 1 cup water - a pinch of salt - 1 cup flour - 4 eggs - oil for deep frying - confectioner's sugar.

    In a medium saucepan, melt the butter in the water. Add salt and flour, and stir until a sticky batter is formed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until the batter is smooth.
    Heat the oil to 375F. Fry mounded teaspoons of dough, several at a time, for about 6 minutes. They are done when they are light, golden brown on each side. Drain them for a few minutes on a clean kitchen towel and serve warm, dusted with the confectioners’ sugar.

  3. Shrimp, guimpe, and wimple crumble

    Just like any normal seafood crumble bake, but substitute shrimp for prawns, and make sure that you are wearing the wimple while cooking.

    The guimpe? Oh, that's for draining the shrimps through, before adding to the mix.

  4. Guimpe Kani Salad

    same ingredients and procedure as listed in any japanese cookbook.

    only difference is the preparer MUST be wearing black lacy guimpe and have to change into red ones when serving the salad.
