My mum has always worked in catering. So for as long as I can remember I’ve been around kitchens and entertaining with food. She has cooked a medieval banquet, made cakes & cookies for the farmers market, made too many toasted sandwiches & meals in a basket to mention & catered for funerals & weddings. In fact I had the pleasure of catering my own wedding with my mum.
I don’t remember my mum ever teaching me how to cook but as the kitchen was always a place were we naturally congregated I couldn’t help but pick things up. (Well, that and the fact that being the youngest of 3, independence was high on my list of priorities.) I watched as mum made boiled bacon, sausage plaits, quiche, fruit cakes, pizzas, chocolate chip cookies & spaghetti bolognese amongst other things.
Thanks mum, I wouldn’t be doing this without you. 🙂
Zephyrus and I made these as a treat for mummy on Tuesday.
They went down very well.
Happy birthday to my beautiful sister, Jane.
Thank you for your unconditional support.
