Was having a discussion with a colleague today about the foods we hated as children and how that influences our preferences today – for good or bad. How we were lied to about the content of a meal and how we, in turn, as parents lie to our children to get them to eat what is available.
Reminiscing of Tripe and onions, Liver loaf, stuffed or braised Hearts and Sweetbreads in white sauce……. devilled Kidneys, boiled Tongue, Oxtail stew, braised Neck and so much more……
“Mr Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowls. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liverslices fried with crustcrumbs, fried hencods’ roes. Most of all he liked grilled mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a fine tang of faintly scented urine.” ― James Joyce, Ulysses
Added to the sweedes, turnips and kohlrabi we were fortunate to never go to bed hungry.
