My (Spanish) grandmother makes the best croquettes in the world. This is according to myself and a handful of other family members. I’m certain that we are totally right.
I asked my grandmother for her croquette recipe. Her answer was: I don’t know, I can’t tell you, I never measure anything, I just make them.
Right… I know that doesn’t sound great, but it rings a bell from what is written in my about (aka Hello!) page. This also doesn’t sound great, but the truth is that I cook like that. I know what I want to make, or I make something up as I go along, and I just add ingredients, look and smell as I cook, until I achieve what I want. This obviously means that when the time comes to writing the recipe here, I have a bit of a hard time quantifying precisely what I had done. I know, I know, I have a food blog so this really is not good news. But then life is not perfect.
