    I read through some of your recipes and realised how “Latvian I was brought up (fed) – mum (Scheluchin)was born in Riga and married an Australian. The “new Australian ” attitude prevailed around the time (1950’s)so sadly I was never taught Latvian. My grand mother (Erpik) was a fantastic cook – very inventive with ingredients, with twists on a lot of the recipes here. Little wonder as her mum was a french pastry cook. Reading the recipes made me laugh and saddened me at the same time, reminding me of my life as a child eating granma’s wonderful inventions and the vacuum left by her death. Crumbs on the table swept by the hand was money from the house. When using salt – a pinch was always thrown over the left shoulder by right handed person, “salt in the devils eye, she would say” If you got a fright – you must immediately begin spitting ( like in my greek wedding ) this is to rid yourself of the fright?……so many weird things.
