Gary Lum from yummylummy.com has very kindly nominationed us for a Liebster Award. I had to go research what that was. A Liebster Award is an award nominated to and from bloggers, to share things about ourselves and show support for fellow bloggers. If you’re unfamiliar with Yummy Lummy, it’s a recipe and restaurant review blogged based in Australia that features excellent photography.
Gary’s ten questions and my (on behave of the Ladies’) ten answers:
What’s the best meal you’ve ever cooked? My lasagna, made in North American fashion with cottage cheese and none of that nasty Bechamel sauce. It takes me hours to make but is always a hit.
What’s your favourite meal? Fajitas
What food makes you remember your childhood? Blueberries, and the endless hours spent picking wild ones. When in the region of northern Georgian Bay, we would drive along until a good potential spot was sighted – a high rocky bit with a clearing. Then, armed with the biggest bowls we had, we would find our way up the hill to inevitably to a clearing full of blueberry bushes. Every time I eat the cultivated store bought variety I think of how blueberries are supposed to taste.
What is your dream meal? A tasting menu featuring scallops, beetroot, balsamic vinegar, calamari, wild mushrooms, butternut squash, red peppers and venison.
What recipe are you planning that you’re excited about? Getting in my car and driving to a new restaurant.
Share something unique/weird about you in the context of food. I’ve eaten a termite, on safari in South Africa. It was straight from the nest and tasted of grass.
Name one food person who you admire and why? Mary Berry, I wish she were my grandma.
What is your favourite kitchen appliance and why? Microwave, because I always forget to take the meat out of the freezer to thaw ahead of time.
