Food for Thought
Wed May 8, 2013
Some smells always bring back fond memories. Seattle Times food writer Nancy Leson says one whiff of mint, and she's suddenly 6 again.
Two of my favorites are flame-broiling meat in a highly air-conditioned room, and the aroma of onion soup on a freezing Quebec day. I guess I just like the memory of warm food smells in a cold environment. Not always, though.
One of my least favorite would be my recollection of boiling seal meat vapors, but that's a story for another day.
What are your most and least favorite food smell memories?
"For the sense of smell, almost more than any other, has the power to recall memories..."
