“Everything that my mother cooked for me seemed normal, so nothing seemed strange. Especially on a Sunday roast, when she did the cabbage, she used to drain the cabbage water off and I’d drink it — it was lovely. I still drink it now, cabbage water. I drunk cabbage water then, I drink cabbage water now, and I still find it beautiful.”
