Do you have a particular food, that when eaten, brings back a specific memory? If so, what is it?
Tomato crab pincer!
It is not often I eat this dish every other day, but when I eat it, it brings me happy memory when I was a kid enjoying the yummilious crab pincer reserved for at our family dinner table.
Cooking the tomato crab dish is my mummy's special recipe. They will buy the crab alive from market and store in a big bucket before killing it for dinner. And I get my chance to 'play' with the crab during the afternoon when they are busy in the office downstairs. I will use a chopstick to poke the crab and push it around, agitating it so it fights back my chopstick. (hehe.. silly things I do as a kid)
yes affirmative heartexpressions, mostly when i used to eat food only from my home, which my mom used to prepare. I love those always. Some food i used to eat when i am so little. I mean some traditional food and some noodles etc, which i sparingly eat now. So whenever i eat noodles or so, i got some nostalgic feeling of childhood.
This is clearly said in medicinal book, Ayurveda. According to ayurveda, memory-boosting foods include sweet potatoes, okra, spinach, oranges, carrots, milk, ghee (clarified butter), tapioca, almonds etc. which when used arouses our past memory.
Well, since I'm getting older, I guess I better start eating a lot more of the memory boosting foods
absolutely heart expressions. but not due to getting older as it is a false belief. Getting older is not our age, but our mind. I believe you are still 17
All food is 'memory-fodder'
I recall eating a tuna-on-rye while watching Welcome Back Kotter!
I remember consuming French onion soup
the day I built a chicken-coup
there was the time I ate
several bags of Arabian dates
to pass the time
in a packing-crate.
So food has many memories for me...
Most of which I'd like to flee.
Yes - food is definitely tied with memories for me!!
Boston cream pie reminds me of my mom who passed because its the dessert she always made and was one of the last things we ate together.
Chili reminds me of the time I lived out west and we had "chili feeds" for all of our fundraisers and school events.
Gelato reminds me of my trip to Italy.
And tortellini soup reminds me of childhood dinners at my grandmothers - we still have lots of dinners there, but for some reason we neer have tortelllini anymore!
Whenever my wife makes Shepherd's Pie and I start to eat I remember the days when I was growing up in Hastings and/or the college refectory in Halifax UK.
Roast with potatoes and carrots mmmmmm.... it always reminds me of moms house and gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
You just made me remember how I would feel on the rare occasions my mom could afford to make that dish. Thanks!
yeah, same situation here I grew up pretty poor so when we had roast it was pretty special.
Any breakfast food reminds me of my parents and living at home as a child. I stopped eating breakfast once I left home but now going back to what is best I eat breakfast more often if not every day and it almost always makes me think of things my mother fixed for breakfast. She was such a wonderful cook and my dad too although he seldom fixed breakfast with the schedule he worked would sometimes do so and if he did it was a real treat for us all being something very unusual. Mainly it just reminds me though of their love of food and I always wish I could share when it is something really good I know they would love.
Definitely! Every time I make my grandmother's homemade tomato sauce and meatballs, I immediately picture myself as a little kid, wearing a giant bib (messy eater), digging into a huge plate of pasta. Not much has changed - I still love pasta, sauce and meatballs - and I still eat like a slob!
...very Proustian.... Well, I use to get these hamburgers in Venice Beach, CA. (where I'm from), that would bring me back memories of my youth - a long time ago - riding my bicycle to the beach during summer and eating these burgers....
There is a pasta and stew dish that my mom made. When I was a child I really didn't like the beef and would hide the pieces under my dish thinking that my mom wouldn't notice. Then when she would clean the dishes there was the hidden stew. I still make this dish today, and tell my kids the story. Today it is one of my favorites.
When I make my grandmother's roast beef dinner with gravy, roasted potatoes, carrots and a green salad with her dressing recipe on it. When i was growing up we always had Sunday dinner at my grandmother's house. A lot of my relatives were "regulars" there and everyone would gather at the table and have at it. the food was just amazingly good.

I dont know what country you are in but KFC in england is just like fast food and to me, fast food is rubbish. Too much unhealthy overpowering sauces and the chicken is always coated in huge amounts of fat.Give me a plain barbecued chicken leg any day.

Does the time of day matter when choosing what food to eat?Are breakfast foods only for the morning? How do feel about a nice steak breakfast?

What smell brings about your greatest memory?Thanks to HappyHer for inspiring this question. Her hub made me think about smells and how they can affect people.
