Childhood memories of food….

While I was at the Good Food Fair at Belgrave Hall yesterday I asked some of the people there about their memories of food as a child. Here are Adam Miller’s answers to my questions.

What was your favourite food as a child – and why did you like it?

Coconut ice. I used to make this with my Grandma, amongst other things. Great fun making, and I built up a reputation for ‘licking out the bowl’!

Was there anything you really hated?

Mushrooms – despite my Mum always placing some on my plate. I have no logical explanation. I think it might have been the texture.

Do you have any memories of school dinners?

Not a great deal as I began to have packed lunches fairly early on. I do remember the large tin, green, water jugs. Oh, and a teacher on duty who always drank hot water!

Many thanks to Adam for his contribution, and for allowing me to add his photo! I’ll pass on some more memories of childhood food soon.
