Recipes. Helpful things aren’t they? Exact measures and ingredients contribute a consistent outcome, often based on years of know for the tastiest possible dish.
Try telling that to this Newfoundland mom. She knows that consistency is overrated, she favor the old fashioned procedures, passed down through the generations. These procedures need you to experience the bake , no fancy schmancy written attitudes and visualizes, this is pure judgement based on the innate knowledge of the ancestors!
Watching this kind of old-school knowledge going passed on over Twitter, folksy Newfoundland colloquialisms aplenty included, is jolly amusing. Twitter user Krista D. Ball decided to share her dialogue with Newfoundland mom for us all to see, based on the phone call they had. Could you cook a successful homemade eat from these definitions?
By the end it’s pretty clear that this is something that is required to be done in person, these sorts of knowledge based on experiencing and judgement exactly does not translate well over the phone. It does make for entertaining speaking however. Scroll down below to check out the convo, read it out in your chief in your best’ newfie’ accent!
This is Krista Ball, she wanted to learn how to realize “Homemade bread”, something she grew up with in Newfoundland
