Meeting Edith was going to be an exciting, overwhelming and especially an otherworldly experience for me. She is an Austrian born Jew of the same age with my country Romania: 102 years.
My Jamaican Grandmother lived with us and took full responsibility for feeding my brothers and I (and half the neighborhood!)
The British are blessed with a fine sense of humour and an ability to make fun of ourselves. I most definitely grew up with ‘British Rail‘ jokes of awful toast, tea and pork pies on board, combined with very late trains !
My culinary heritage is Greek. My parents were born on a small island in the south east of Greece. They lived during the Italian occupation, in a time when food was very scarce…
Grandma Mia has a lot of food stories to tell; she tells them in the kitchen every day by preparing delicious meals for us; she tells them sharing memories and recreating recipes from the past; she tells them by inspiring me every day.
