My Auntie Fay made the best apple strudel I have eaten. She took the recipe to her grave, as far as I know. I used to ask her each time I saw her how she made it, but she refused to divulge her secret. What a loss to the world.
I imagine we have all experienced this from someone who has prepared something for us to eat. Why is this? Are they worried we will do it better? Are they embarrassed at how easy it is to cook something so delicious? Are they nervous we won’t approve of an ingredient?
I say secrets in the kitchen should be made illegal. It’s just not fair.
Oh, by the way, does anyone have a good apple strudel recipe?
