Family dish- grandfather’s cake

In my mother’s family there is one dish that i love very much. It’s called “grandfather’s cake”. The recipe came from my great grandfather. We make this cake almost every holiday or birthday.

The cake made from two layers: one of chocolate, and the second of vanilla and between them vanilla foam.

I choose this cake because I like very much eat it in most of holidays and birthdays, since I was little child. Also I like to make this cake with my mother.

Grandmother tell the story to everyone from my side in the family, that don’t was present in the occasion, now everybody remember her first word. Also it was one sign for her independence.

Family member- mother

I chose my mother, Anna, because I very attached to her since the childhood, and we have a lot in common, and I love to spend a lot time with her.  Some people say I look like my mother and act like her.

My mother was born on 5.4.1970, in Mogilov, The former Soviet Union.

For fun, she and her friends or her siblings went to the cinema. She also liked to be in the field and pick up flowers. Somtimes she went to the forest pick up mushrooms and berries.

In the winter she liked to do ski with her friends.

In her free time she also liked to read books, fish and play a violin, like in the picture.

My mom told me that the world was very different in the past. There were no phones, if you wanted to call your friend you went to their home, also their parents can’t know exactly where are their children.

In Russia that time, my mom dosen’t knew what computer is, and they learn a little about it, and only when she came to Israel, she saw one. When she still was in Russia, there were not much cars, and today, much times more cars.

Also the food was different, the milk and other drink was in glass bottels. They made food at home like pickled vegetables and jam, that today we buy in the supermarket.
