Wow I have been tagged again! from zero to two in a short fowl soup (:P)
This meme was invented by Nicky at Delicious Days, so that you the reading public would get a chance to find out some more weird things about me that I might not share otherwise.
What is your first memory of baking/cooking on your own?
The first thing I remember really making myself was lettuce soup. I must have been 4?I got the idea from Peter Russel Clarke, I can distinctly remember not letting my parents help at all. But when I tried it, I can remeber hating it, and my parents eating it..
Who had the most influence on your cooking?
My mother and my Oma. I remember learning to bake bread and eat healthily from my mother. We spent alot of time with my Oma and Opa as kids, I have so many good memories of her food. Porridge with sultanas, Butter cream cake, Sultana cake, potato pancakes, apple pancakes, lentil soup and the list oges on. The other day she was at my Aunties house and she made her bean soup for dinner, the smell took me right back to my child hood.
Do you have an old photo as “evidence” of an early exposure to the culinary world and would you like to share it?
I will have to get back to you as the photos are all at my parents place.
Mageiricophobia - do you suffer from any cooking phobia, a dish that makes your palms sweat?
Nope, I dont think so... I am willing to try anything once. (see post on fox dung coffee for proof!)
What would be your most valued or used kitchen gadgets and/or what was the biggest let down?
My Furi East West knife that Casey bought me last year. It is awesome, if you wonder why your dishes don't turn out well and you are using crappy knives... dont complain to me :P
The Zester he bought me at the same time, it would zest anything!
Name some funny or weird food combinations/dishes you really like - and probably no one else!
Hmm, I dont know. I asked Case and he said nothing. So either we are both freaks cause we both like the same weird stuff, or we are freaks cause we don't like any really weird combinations.
What are the three eatables or dishes you simply don’t want to live without?
Really good cheese (why I could NEVER be Vegan), Wine and sourdough bread. They are simple staples that could keep you satisisfied for life. (Plus plent of fresh veggies... sorry they are definately a necessity too)
Any question you missed in this meme, that you would have loved to answer? Well then, feel free to add one!
The quickies section:
Your favourite ice-cream…
Chocolate! (but only really good chocolate, especially if it has chocolate chunks in it)
You will probably never eat…
Brains... no explanation needed
Your own signature dish…
Roast Lamb and vegtables.... mmm
Added by Sam of Becks & Posh: A common ingredient you just can't bring yourself to stomach...
Leatherwood Honey :P (Or any Honey)
Who to pass the torch on too....
we'll this is hard cause it was so recently that I tagged people, so I dont want anyone to feel like I am picking on them, so it's not like I dont love you guys anymore promise xxx
Since I chose all grls last time, I'd like to pass this on toReid, Alberto and the Pieman so I dont get into trouble for being sexist.
*** UPDATE*** I am going to tag Michele of Oswego tea as well, cause we need to give her a reason to blog since her camera is still being so naughty! and cause she wont be mad at me :)
