Pretty sure I could out cook my dear old Mum any day. I don't boil sprouts until they are pulp and my yorkshire puds are light and fluffy.
I actually think that my Mum doesn't really enjoy cooking. She did have her speciality pieces like her chocolate terrine and lemon meringue pie, but I don't actually think her heart was in it.
I guess that for her cooking was a means to an end rather than a hobby. My Gran, however, was an excellent cook and I will never be able to produce her pastry or shortbread.
Anyone else out there a better cook than their Mum.
