When my friend Chaya was talking about her grandmother’s special recipe, her cousin replied that whenever they had that cake, her husband got nostalgic, as it evoked fond memories of his wonderful Bubby.
Food has a way of linking memories and past experiences with the present. It often is the association of the smell and taste of a certain dish that causes us to go back in time to a certain reminiscence or tradition.
Do you have a recipe that is special to your family? For the next month we will be collecting recipes that mean something special. Upload or email the recipe and let us know why it is special to your family. We are giving away 3 of my cookbooks, to 3 different people, and you could be one of them!
