Family Food traditions are a great way of preserving family memories. How are you preserving your family memories and handing down your favourite recipes? What is your signature family dish? We would love you to share these with us smiley

Some of my most treasured childhood memories are from the regular Booth Family gatherings. Complete with the BBQ plates, the kids rug, Uncle Doug's Spaghetti bolognaise and sausage rolls, Mum's deviled eggs, Ken and Bev's curry, Grandma's Pavlova, watermelon balls, and on birthday celebrations - Aunty Lois's Cream Butterfly cakes. They were the BOMB! Booth cousins scrambled for one of those cream butterfly cakes - light, sweet and very Moorish.
