New research from leading older people's charity, Age UK, has found that food triggers the nation's fondest memories of their grandparents; with two in five Brits (40%) saying a favourite time with their grandparents when growing up was eating food together for family occasions.
More than two fifths (44%) believe that food has played an important role in their relationships with their grandparent – so much so that over half of the population (53%) are reminded of their grandparents by retro refreshments and nostalgic nibbles.
Reminisce with the following ten dishes:
Bread and butter pudding
Mince and potatoes
Apple pie / apple crumble
Sponge cakes and puddings
