365 writing prompt: Evasive action

What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept? Did the truth ever come out?

As far as I know, I do not keep secrets, and there was no incidence of me keeping a secret significant or otherwise. Therefore the possibility of coming out does not exist.

My husband always told me I must never give my recipes to anyone, that way they can only taste my food when they visit me.

I remember one of my neighbors from India wanted my recipe for a very famous dessert we have in Bangladesh. I went to her house prepared the dessert for her while she was watching. She could not make it the way I did,this is what she told me.

I know for a fact it does not matter if I give my so called secret recipes, they are unable to duplicate it , this is true with everyone not just me. There is some kind of magic in our hands we all have, even with the same recipe, ingredients and what have you, it does not taste the same.

The question is, does theirs taste better? No, it doesn’t even taste the same. This is what they tell me.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post.

    You’re so right…two people can make a meal by a recipe, that they will be different. There’s something special about the hand, the person, who prepares the meal :-).

    All good wishes,


  2. This is great. Everyone has slightly different technique, and the intangibles sometimes make or break the food. There’s almost nothing that my Mom makes that I won’t eat, even if I don’t like it elsewhere.
