Illustration Friday - FLAVOUR
Most people seem to have a yearning for some of the foods and flavours of their childhood. I know that at times my Irish mother HAD to eat boiled bacon, cabbage and potatoes. As much of my childhood was spent in Fiji, I ate Indian and Fijian food regularly and that’s what I so often yearn to taste. I can fulfill my urges for Indian food relatively easily as there are so many shops that supply the raw materials and I’ve taught myself how to cook pretty authentic tasting Indian food. However the ethnic shops near me have yet to discover the delights of dalo, dalo leaves and duruka so I’ll just have to dream of the last time I tasted dalo, palusami and duruka in lolo.
As I don’t want to dwell any more on the foods I’ll probably never taste again, this picture is a celebration of what I can eat here in England – my breakfast – a perfect navel orange and a juicy pomegranate.
