Well I can proudly say that we have handed down from my nana (on mum's side) a tradition of not being able to cook! But in saying that we do each have a signature dish. That one thing that someone made the mistake of saying they liked and we keep on dishing it up. The running joke when I was much younger and living at home was that if we told mum we liked something the next day a truck would arrive with a years supply.
Nan's signature dish is Trifle (Very nice) Every family gathering ,birthday, anniversary etc.... (except christmas) without fail Nan does the trifle . Even last weekend Nan made the trifle for my Uncle's 60th birthday. People there that hadn't seen nan for years said "Oh Yes Nana's trifle" Not a bad effort for nan who turned 97 this year. She is fantastic for her age Nan still loves a good giggle,and last weekend enjoyed a couple of glasses of gin and tonic.
Mum's signature dish is Irish Stew, (Morning, Noon and Night. Slightly exaggerated)
I make a mean Pasta salad. People make the mistake of repeatedly telling me how nice it is....... and of course I keep making it.
I thought my daughter would break with tradition and actually learn to cook, but of late my son has shown more promise. My hubby is a great cook and so was my father.
I bring to you today Our Family Tradition of buying a handmade Christmas Pudding. I have been for approx. three years wanting to purchase a handmade pudding from Mandi's Kitchen I have seen them often at the Mornington Craft Market. I have finally purchased one. I also purchased her Brandy Sauce.
The kids love her stand as they get to taste each of the puddings. They are happy to buy each one.
Mmmmmm Can't wait to eat it.
