What are some of the stories that have been passed down through the generations? What recipes that saw our ancestors through troubled times do we still make? In my family we still make "wacky cake", a dessert I've been told that was developed in the depression and sustained through WW2 that uses very few of the rationed ingredients, not needing eggs or butter and very little flour and sugar. What are some of the stories your family has that remind you of those who made the food that have become family traditions?
Have you ever come across a recipe so old it doesn't have a temperature or time? Have you ever tried to remake a recipe your grandmother was famous for, but never wrote down? Tell us your stories of exploring your past and the tastes that come from there. These are the flavours that weave through our families, our traditions and our sense of self, and deserve to be celebrated.
