Futtocks Posted October 7, 2016 Share Posted October 7, 2016 What are your family recipes/foods? We have a family scrapbook full of recipes that goes back generations. Some are clippings from magazines or newspapers, some are family recipes written down. There are more that a few (usually from the Fifties and Sixties) which we'd never try to do, because they sound absolutely disgusting, but many that we refer back to because they're good and they work. Mind you, my mum's first cooking experience was a recipe from the book for chicken liver pate, and she thought (at the time) that "one clove of garlic" meant an entire bulb... you can imagine what that smelt like! But sometimes we rediscover recipes, like Mushrooms Shalyapin Style. A Russian recipe that had been snipped from a colour supplement years ago and forgotten, but one that has recently become a family favourite for Christmas Eve. I cook it for myself every now and then too, because it is very tasty. "We are easily breakable, by illness or falling, or a million other ways of leaving this earthly life. We are just so much mashed potato." Don Estelle Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
