Mum and the pasta machine
30 yrs ago, when you couldn't get noodles dry or fresh in New Zealand and Australia.
My mum in Oz had an Italian noodle/pasta maker. This kind of machine is still in use in cooking shows.
My mum asked me to buy one. But I was Miss Lazybone, and I said, no thank you. Now I regret the hasty decision. Mum died shortly after I left her to return to New Zealand.
Every time I see the machine on TV, I think of my late mum, the last thing we did was roll Peking Duck pastry for Christmas lunch.
