When I was out on my daytime travels the other day, I visited a garden centre and they had an inviting display of fruit and vegetables. Bramley apples caught my eye and I recalled memories of an apple cake I had made many years ago when I attended a cookery class with my mum in my twenties. So, with that in mind, yesterday I went out to my garage book shelf to retrieve the notebooks I had kept for so many years, along with other old recipes I had collected since that time.
Just a brief glance reminded me of close friends we used to meet up with regularly, trying out different three course meals on each other. At the time I collected a Cordon Bleu magazine course so many of the recipes for our dinners often came from this. Sadly, broken relationships lead to related joint friendships being lost and only the memories, and the recipes such as Black Forest Gateaux, remain.
I will be sharing some of the recipes, and other memories, in future posts.
Enjoy your day.
