How To Maintain Culinary Legacy Of Our Family?
There is no guarantee in life and we can’t predict the future. We don;t know how long we will remain living on Earth. There are many things that we need to pass down to our children and other descendants. Other than family traditions, we should have more than a few special recipes that are essentially family secrets. In reality, time is ticking and we could bring our best-kept secret along with us to the grave. Many people realize that they have waited for far too long and there are things that they are unable to forever. Pieces of information could disappear for good. Because we are not be around forever, we should make sure that our children will be well informed about many things. It is not a good thing to leave our children and grandchildren with completely nothing, in terms of information and knowledge. Grandma’s cookies and pies are sentimental things that can’t be replicated without enough instruction on how they can be made.
In the Internet, there are many thousands of tasty recipes that people can try, but none them taste the same with what our parents make. Even the best cookbook out there can’t replicate the same texture and taste. There are minor additions and cooking process alterations that can make the food taste so wonderful. Some cookie recipe can be quite simple to make, but there’s no guarantee that we will be able to achieve the same thing. We should make sure that the whole family will enjoy the meal, although our parent has passed away. It is important to encourage parents to relinquish the secrets in cooking. So, it won’t be a big mystery how the meal can be so wonderful for us. It is important to know that our parent won’t be around us forever and we simply can’t wait forever. In this case, we need to start the family cookbook immediately and this is a project that we need to start immediately. Those secret recipes must be immediately divulged, so nothing will lost forever.
When preparing for the legacy cookbook, we should make priorities and choose dishes that are known to become the best and loved by family members and relatives. It may take a few days to fully document the recipe and it could take a few times of experiment under the guidance of our parents to make sure that the dish is similar or nearly identical. All the smallest details should be written down. It means that family cookbook can be more detailed than typical cookbooks. We may also need to take picture of the whole process to make sure that we are not missing something. These dishes are among special gifts that parents are giving us, so we need to make sure that everything will be able to replicate it as close as to the original. After the cookbook is passed down to the children, it is important to practice it often. We should be able to create these dishes on our own, so we will be sure that we are able to provide our descendants with an important family legacy.
