Eseta Lemanu

English Language Learning Assistant

I was about 8 years old, and I would sit outside by our umu kuka while my Mum would do the baking for family gatherings like Christmas and White Sunday.  My job was to mix the egg and flour and then get the icing ready, mixing it and of course getting to lick the bowl. We would then cook the cakes and pies on the wire shelves amongst the hot fire. Even now, I still use those recipes that Mum and I would make together, and of course, I can’t resist licking the bowl clean (especially with the custard!!)
