mum's cooking, mum's thoughts, food

There is nothing like home-cooked meals to cap a tiring or a particularly stressful day. Apart from being prepared and cooked with love, these hearty, all-too familiar meals are tangible expressions of our mums’ love and affection, as well as of their promise to always nurture their children and their family.

My Mama has been gone for 8 years now but each time I taste a dish that tasted so much like her meals, it immediately brings me back to my childhood when my Mama would prepare all those delicious dishes for me and my siblings, it instantly brings me back to the time when I am eating the same dish in our dining table, bringing back all my fond memories of childhood, along with the warmth of my Mama’s love. The all-too familiar taste reminds me so much of the flavor of home.

My Mama is an excellent cook, try as I may, I will probably never be at par with the magic she can whip in the kitchen. But it is a good thing that through products like Knorr, I am never closer to achieving these familiar flavors of home in my own kitchen and serve these meals to my family.

This is what the recently-launched Knorr Video is all about. Aptly called “Flavour of Home,” the video depicts the story of Carmen who works far away in the Arctic and is brought back home at once through the familiar dishes prepared with Knorr that brings the delicious flavor of home and her mum’s cooking to her.

The emotional and heart-warming video portrays the latest research commissioned by Knorr stating that flavors make people feel happy and comforted. The same research also shows that no matter how much time has passed, people still find their mum’s cooking to be one of the greatest flavors on earth and that a great number of people agrees that a single taste of their mum’s cooking is enough to bring happy and fond memories of childhood, and I really cannot agree more.

Watch the video and let me know which dishes remind you so much of your childhood and the flavor of home. As for me, my mum’s spaghetti, kare-kare {stewed oxtail}, and dinuguan {pork blood stew} are just a few of my favorites.
