My Food Memories
When I was a teenager I was very tall and grew 6 inches in one year.
This meant that I was always hungry and had trouble consuming enough food to keep me going.
I had always liked cooking and particularly liked cooking fast, so my breakfast of choice was pancakes, and lots of them. I got so fast at making pancakes that I fancied my dream job would be working as a “short order chef” in an American diner where I could cook pancakes with one hand whilst doing “eggs over-easy” with the other.
I would make 10 or 12 pancakes and stack them up to keep warm under the grill. I would then bodge holes in this stack so that when I poured maple syrup over the top it would absorb more before it started leaking off the edge of the plate. Then I cut it like a birthday cake to eat it slice by slice.
Those were the days when I could eat whatever I liked and still be painfully thin!
