Pot and Ladle

Nothing is more comforting for me than a soup or a stew. Just as my mother’s whole line was raised, I was brought up eating my mom’s sweet cinnamon vanilla matzoh ball soup, Hungarian goulash, sweet potato tzimmes, and slow cooked brisket. Some of the recipes have stayed the same for generations, like the goulash and tzimmes. Other recipes have changed as our tastes and locations have changed, like the brisket. Regardless of where the recipes are rooted and how the recipes have changed throughout my family’s legacy, our traditional home cooked meals start with a pot and a ladle. These two cooking items have become my most used kitchen tools, reminding me of my family each time I bring them to the stovetop.
