Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)
In the old days people used the coal pit to make and sell coals. Now there’s gas but people use the coals more now. They like to use it to cook certain dishes. It takes at least a month to burn down to coals.
What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)
The whole process, we can be resourceful.
We can create our own fuel for cooking.
All cooking can be done outside by the fireside.
Older people never used the gas stove, they only wanted to cook outside.
It had the correct flavor, especially with oildown.
Grandma’s cooking was the best food, cooked fast as well.
Grandmother’s recipes are the most tasty.
