アイルランド留学生活〜ハウスメイトとわいわい晩ごはん

予想外のメニューができあがり・・・これも食文化の違い


1人のハウスメイトが去ったあと。まだ新しい入居者が決まる前のこと、その頃の我が家では、新しいハウスメイトをどうするよ、どうするよ、という話し合いという名目で、私とポーランド人のハウスメイト、そして彼女の友達が家に来て毎晩のようにごはんを一緒に食べていました。一番先に帰宅するのが私で、ごはんを作っているところに仲良しのポーランド人のハウスメイトが帰宅。料理をしながらおしゃべりしてると「今日はあの子が来る予定なの。一緒に迎えに行かない?」ということで、彼女の車に乗せてもらって一緒に迎えに行ったりして。家で私が作ったごはんと彼女たちがポーランドの食材を扱っているお店で買ってきたものなんかをシェアしながら、ワインを飲んで平日でもよく遅くまでガールズトークしてました・・・ほんと、今思えばハウスメイト探しが女子会のいい言い訳だったなぁ(笑)。

私が作ったごはん、と言っても、私、昼は大盛りまかないパスタを毎日食べているので、夜は野菜スープやサラダがほとんど。でもときどき、彼女たちのためにチャーハンやお好み焼き(お好み焼きソースはアジアンマーケットで入手。)なんていうメニューを作ったりして。

ポーランド人の彼女たちにとっては、私の作るメニューは見知らぬ食べ物、でもおいしいと思ってくれてたようで、毎回喜ばれました。かく言う私も、彼女たちが出してくるメニューは新鮮なものばかり。おいしいライ麦のパンや、瓶詰めのポテトサラダとかソーセージとか。本当に、食べ物にはその国の文化が現れてて楽しい♪ちなみに、ハウスメイトの子は基本、料理をしない人。なので「私も買ってくるばかりじゃなくて、しのぱんを見習って料理しないとね。今度作り方教えて!」と言っていたのでした。

 

そんなある日、帰りがちょっと遅くなった私。帰宅したらすでにポーランド人のハウスメイトと友達も到着していて。

ポーランド人のハウスメイトが「今日は私が野菜スープ作ったから!見てみてー!」と得意げな様子。わぁー本当?どれどれー?と、キッチンに顔を出し、彼女がじゃーん、と言わんばかりに火にかけられた鍋のふたを開けたところ…

 

え?これ、スープ?ごはん炊けてますけど?

 

そう、鍋の中にはスープではなく、ふっくらと炊けたお米が!どういうことーーー!!もうみんなで大・爆・笑!!どうやら、私が野菜スープの具材は何でもいいの、家にある野菜をスープストックで煮込むだけ、と教えたため、彼女は野菜のみならずお米も入れていたようで。アイルランドだと、お米はパラパラとした洋風のお米で、箱入りのものがスーパーで売っているのですが、ゆでてサラダに入れたりして使っているので、彼女の認識では野菜の一部だったみたい。で、今日は私が野菜スープ作るんだ!と張り切って作っていて、鍋に野菜をどんどん入れているところに、ついでにお米も入れてみようかしら、さらさらーっと鍋に投入…ということだったそうです。

 

余りに得意げにスープだと言いつつ、予想外なメニューのできあがりに、大爆笑の後も繰り返し、「すごく自信満々で「スープ作ったから!」って言ってたのに!あの時の顔!!」と突っ込みまくり。でも、みんなで食べてみたら、ちゃんとおいしかったです。スープで炊いたお米、すなわちピラフですもんね。予想外だったってこと以外、何の問題もありません(笑)。

 

国が違うと毎回おもしろい発見があるな、と感じる各国の食卓。料理の仕方でも、また新たな発見があったりします。でもそれより何より、一人でごはんを作って食べるのも嫌いじゃないけれど、こうして誰かと一緒にわいわいとやりながら、いろいろおしゃべりしながら食べるごはん、それはいつも以上に楽しくておいしいものだなと、改めて思った日々だったのでした☆
