- Chips and peas. You can buy the peas in packets and chips are proper chips. You can still get them from the chip shop but it doesn't taste the same as home made

Perhaps I shall be proved wrong though!Carol nee PatersonGood morning, David.In my humble view, I doubt if you will be further enlightened by this site, if you are looking for new topics or, indeed, anything at all.However, your message has inspired me to draw members into a question of old Dundee cookery or, shall I rephrase this by asking members what they remember their mothers, grannies and aunties cooking, on an every day basis.I remember "Stovies" (Stoved Potatoes) which were made from dripping, potatoes and left-over meat, but how one would make it, quite defies me. On my last visit north, I saw "stovied" for sale in Goodfellow & Stevens but couldn't quite think that such a fine bakery would stock the stovies which I remembered.Any inspiration to tell us your memories; DON'T be shy.Edmund Raphael----- Original Message -----From: David PerksSent: Monday, October 07, 2013 11:52 PMSubject: [dundee-history] Re: File - New Members welcome.docI am notReally a new member just a member wnohas been absent for some time and looking for some any news from the group.

- I was talking recently to a sister-in-law who well remembers Busters bought from a stall in the Overgate. I don't - I do remember, though, a very excellent chip shop in the Overgate, where we bought pudding suppers on the way back to the High School from choir practice for the Christmas concert in St Mary's!

I've never hear of "Busters"The problem with the taste of anything from MOST fish and chip shops nowadays, is the deep-frying in anything but lard.However unhealthy, that was the best taste, whether you bought from The Deep Sea in the Nethergate or from the West End, King Street, Broughty Ferry.Does anyone remember "Polie Joe" who rant The Malta, at the corner of King Street and Grey Street? He used to repair cycles and radios but never smiled.
