When I met Lee, we often spoke about food. What we ate when we were young, what our special dishes were, but also about the Romance of this recipe.
With each recipe of Lee’s Mum, she had written special memories with that particular dish and she wrote it under Romance of this recipe.
During my years together with Lee, we gathered special moments ourselves.
One of them is this: When Lee was a child, her parents sent her to bed after lunch. “But what are you going to do Mum?, she asked. We are also going to bed. To play snakes and ladders. Lee found that pretty boring, but I don’t think her parents did!”
In my cooking book La Cucina Carolina I left Romance of this recipe blank. For you to fill in your own special memories.
I wish my readers a rich life. Filled with beautiful memories, lovely food, with family and friends and special moments.
Enjoy! Lekker eet! Buon appetito! Bon appétit! Eet smakelijk! Selamat Makan! Buon provecho! Born up a tree!
