My students, this time, come from Scotland, wife and husband which would like to be able to reproduce a dish for their daughter who is a vegetarian …I know that in Scotland there are plenty of vegetables and definitely will not have difficulty finding ingredients; even though we have different taste and aroma, I know.
In Italy we say: “Who well begins is half done”, and with them, I started really well.
Yes, because the cooking class with them was a really special experience, we talked about a lot of our interests, and passions. They told me of Scotland, pastures in the north, the cows with long hair and the delicious berries to dive into the porridge. And here I was getting at; at some point Ewan looks at me and asks: “Do you know how making porridge? “, and I said, “No, not at all”.
It took a moment and then … it’s off to the kitchen with milk, cereal and fruit in his hand; took a pot and… taught me how to make a real Scottish Porridge!
