Jorge is outside with friends and family. He talks about his experience.

It’s, well, it’s…It’s often what we miss most. When we arrived here, we didn’t think we’d find what we ate at home.

[voices, children playing]



Following the opening credit Get-together with friends and family, Baldovino family, Victoriaville, the clip shows people preparing and cooking food. Jorge stands outside.

[Jorge: Sometimes, we eat things from home more often than our family members who are still there. Now and then, well, I’ll post pictures on Facebook and everything and my cousins say: “Hey! You’re lucky! You ate that!” I’ll say: “Well, yeah!” and they’re reply: “I haven’t eaten that in such a long time because my mother hasn’t made it.”]

Oh, but, you know, my mother loves to cook, so we eat!

[music, voices, children playing]



Adults and children have fun at the get-together.

[music, voices, laughter]

In the kitchen, Mrs. Baldovino serves food. Jorge is outside with friends and family and talks about his experience.

[Jorge: I know what she does, I know which ingredients she uses…but preparing everything, I just can’t do that.]

But I know the recipes. All of my friends ask for my mother’s recipes. I share them but I can’t make them.

[voices, children playing]
