    I made tourtiere today. Haven't had it since I was a kid in Canada. Making it in individual ramekins cuts down on the pie crust needed. I used to eat this with ketchup but made an apple, onion and tomato chutney which has a similar flavour profile but more texture.

    One of my favorite after school meals. I would have the whole bag to myself in a big white bowl. I hated the peas so I would eat everything besides the peas, lol.9sbefposzz27.png

    I watched Masterchef: The Professionals on BBC iPlayer. On the penultimate episode, the chefs were asked to cook something that brought back a childhood food memory. The guy from Essex remembered picking blackberries with his grand dad. The guy from the Netherlands remembered fishing with his dad, and the day he caught his first eel. The guy from Nepal remembered the tiffin box lunches his mother would bring to him down by the riverside. The presentor asked him what he was doing down by the riverside. Apparently. being a child labourer digging a canal.

    What childhood food memories do you have? Here's mine.

    I must have been less than 4 years old, because this memory was from my birthplace Taiwan and we immigrated to Canada after that. I remember being woken up in the middle of the night and being dragged downstairs, where to my surprise the house was heaving with people. I wondered whether this is what the grownups did, after I was put to bed. Someone shoved a sticky sweet rice cake into my hands. Those rice cakes called nian gao are traditionally served on New Year's Eve, and one of my parents guests must have convinced them to wake me up to see the fireworks. I am still fond of those cakes but haven't had one in many years.
