What helped further was that unlike today’s time, there were not any options , there was just one variety, we order for a pita wich and we get it the way it was made by the person behind the counter.
It tasted amazing each time, no fuss , no complains about eating same kind of stuff ever….
Unfortunately the person was a little ahead for his time…….I was not very happy to find out that he left without trace one fine day..
Now with my culinary experiments…it was more than necessary for me to recreate the experience for my loved one’s at home.
This is way different from what I ate, as it was probably at an age when I could not distinguish between a potato and a radish. I simply understood that I liked food or I did not want to have it ever. So I guess, it will need quite a bit of meditation for me to reach that part of the memory..
