|Sprats (a kind of fish) have gone out of fashion|
There was an article published in
the BBC News Magazine with the above title. Basically, an article on reviving
forgotten foods prompted a response from readers about what dishes and foods
they would love to bring back! Britain
Though my mother was born in
I can’t say that I recognized any of the missed items. And, cooking was not my mom’s favorite
pastime! Though, having said that, I do associate food with growing up. A few years ago my sisters and I pooled our
collective memories of our favorite meals as made by mom and compiled them into
a little booklet containing those recipes and images of her throughout her
life. It was fun to discover what we all remembered fondly and also the various dishes that only one of us particularly cared for. We still make our Trifle using her recipe and I'm always up for a shepherd's pie!! England
What would be on your list of foods you remember from growing up (or remember hearing about when growing up) that are now pretty much forgotten and that you would like to see revived? Please post a comment!
Or, what dishes just bring back such fond memories of growing up?
