Use food memories to cook up a new piece of creative writing in this week's exercise

Think of an item of food that has a particular memory for you that is linked to a place. Who prepared this for you? What do you remember? Include as much sensory detail as you can.

For the remaining time, create the first draft of a story inspired by this memory.
