Pasta alla Carbonara

Well my story about the first dish I cooked makes me laughing still nowadays! I was 18, i was watching with my grandmother a show on tv! She used always cook for us when my mum was out for working.

But that evening she said" Oh boy you must cook tonight, you can drive, you go to college, you have a girlfriend...you have to learn!"

I started with pasta alla carbonara because my granny was italian...

i did all of my best! Today I'm a chef! Thanks to my unforgetable grandmother!

Omellete. Mum showed me and I made a hash of it. She said try again. The second time, one side was a bit cremated.

Mum then gave me a wonderful book to read called An Omellete and a Glass of Wine by Elizabeth David. She said in it, was how to make Omellete Moliere which she learnt when she was 12. Standing beside me at the stove, Mum encouraged me. It was perfect. I then made her one and felt really good.
