“What’s for tea mum?”...... No matter how much older we get we can always remember our mother’s special recipe for that one meal, whether big or small, that got you sprinting down the stairs and into the kitchen.
We can all imagine as a parent, trying to cook for a whole family can have its difficulties, one family member doesn’t like sprouts, another won’t eat their vegetables all together! The compromising can be endless but one unique talent mums will always guarantee to have is finding that niche dish, which against all the odds, everybody around the dinner table can share a slice of. Some mums can bake the richest tasting chocolate cake with the perfect amount of icing, others cook those Sunday roast’s potatoes to that perfect golden colour with just the right crispiness. Getting your hands on the recipe can have its challenges but sometimes it’s just a mother’s touch which creates that ever lasting taste leaving you desperate for another bite.

WINNER: STEVE YOUNG - "My mum used to turn out some great dishes. She used to write the recipes in a little brown book and when that was full she wrote them on scraps of paper and just inserted them between pages. She used to make an amazing Lasagne which in the 70's was seen as quite a trendy dish instead of the staple it's perceived as today. The recipe has a few 'secret' ingredients which I still add when I make the dish these days"
