Week 13 : Mini Links : What does your grandmother cook in your country?

My grandma is extremely good at cooking and so is KW’s mum.

She has just made magnificent zong zi (a traditional Chinese food, made of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo, reed, or other large flat leaves. They are cooked by steaming or boiling. In the Western world, they are also known as rice dumplings or sticky rice dumplings) for all of us and more than enough for my family as well.

My grandma used to cook a lot more but she has a bad hip so she cannot stand for long periods of time now. She is really good at ginger chicken, egg soup and chilli crab.

I once went on a farm holiday in Perth and stayed with a family there for a few days. The grandma cooked great pies every night for dinner!

What does your grandma cook for you in your country?

  1. My grandmother cooks very salty food! Apparently when you get older your tastebuds do not work as well so you need more and more intense flavours.

    1. Oh our grandma cooks very bland food now, in contrast. Ya, i think when you get older, the tastebuds are not that good. But i still like my grandma’s food, it reminds me of the good old days.
