So many of our happiest childhood memories are connected to food. Picnics by the sea, afternoon tea with Granny, Mammy’s lamb stew, or treacle pudding around the kitchen table. How many times have I heard, “I remember Aunt Margie used to make a wonderful apple pie. I wish I’d asked her for the recipe.” So don’t leave it until it’s too late.–Darina Allen, Forgotten Skills of Cooking
