I was chatting to Mum. She started reminiscing (as old biddies do!) about the past. She was talking about her time in Czechoslovakia. (I don't dwell too much on exactly why she was there....her group of Hitler Youth girls were apparently helping some German families who had moved/settled there) Anyway, Mum was talking about some Czech nuns she knew who cooked the most amazing meal of cabbage and meatballs. Mum was fairly drooling as she talked about the meal.Mum was not much of a cook back then, and never asked for the recipe - and maybe they wouldn't have given it to her....so all she has is her memories of this dish. This got me thinking.... I would love the recipe for Omi's baked rice pudding. It was thick you sliced it,...a completely different pudding to the more 'wet' English rice pud....there is a recipe in Omi's cook book, which is nice enough but not quite the same! In Singapore we sometimes went to the Ammas' market at night and I had the most divine tiny little coconut cakes that were served warm...I'm a good Christian girl but I would quite possibly consider killing for that recipe! Those little mouthfuls were just soooooo good! And in Germany, I once had hare with red cabbage in a little restaurant. The cabbage was good - but the hare was out of this world! I don't know what the seasoning was or how they had cooked it but I would just love that recipe! Oh and from school dinners....the cook made her own spam fritters. The secret was the batter! I know you can buy prepared spam fritters but they are just not the same! I'd love to find that dinner lady and steal her recipe...or maybe just ask nicely for it! So....what recipes do you not have but really wish you did?
