just pondering... to show your love for someone? Not just romantic love - love for a child, or a friend, or a mother, or a father, etc. It will obviously be different for everyone and who you cook for. I shall start: Romantic partner: no idea, I do not have one and the ones I had were fussy eaters. Children: very German, Kasseler with potatoes. Both vote for this. Mother, deceased: She loved my beef ragout with dumplings. Step Dad: My lasagne. My Grandma: My chicken soup. My Grandad, deceased: My roast beef and roast tatties. My best friend: My roast spelt bolognese.
