I tried to access the site you mentioned and got an error message 403 forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Since I am Administrator on my own computer, I don't understand this, but I'm not about to push it. I don't need to access bad sites.

It seems that the directions to turn your burner to medium are incorrect.

If I were to use medium heat it would probably boil over. My electric stove tends to boil rather than simmer even on the lowest setting.

We can see it's a real website. It's just not working right now.

The cooking police took the site down because it doesn't know how to simmer.

Julia Child has a cookbook called The Way to Cook. I don't know of anyone else who can get away with a name like that.

She was a CIA intelligence officer in her earlier years. I bet she was taught how to intimidate someone!

The bold italics parts are unnecessary. After adding the wine, you want to reduce it. That means boil it down so it evaporates. There is no need to reduce to a simmer to do that. It just takes too long.

After adding the stock, BTB (bring to a boil) then RTS (reduce to a simmer) by setting your burner to the temperature setting that results in a simmer.
