Lost and Found

OK, we lost all flavour from our food.

But perhaps you’re like me. Perhaps you found other eating pleasures? Things you barely noticed before rose to greater prominence?

I like to titillate with texture. I like that salt comes in several guises. Even bitter isn’t always twisted. And I discovered my T Spot: T for trigeminal, the nerves that transmit a bunch of interesting sensations.

I experiment with food, turning up the volume for the twenty percent of sensory ability that remains. People Like Us are different, so for us the rules should change. My rule states that there are no rules. If you’ve come across ingredients, food combos or methods of preparation (however wacky) that do something for you, please let me know.

I plan to put some ideas together, both yours and mine. This page will become a place for ‘Food things Found’.

  1. I love food in general (I’m a congenital anosmic), but this is a combination you might enjoy as well: slices of crispbread/Wasa crackers (crunchy texture and, according to some research, a ‘starchy’ taste) with beetroot relish (sweetness of sugar, acidity of vinegar) and on top of that some pieces of a strong blue cheese, such as Roquefort (sharp, salty taste). I find it absolutely delicious!

    1. Thanks for this Nathalie. Wonderful Roquefort…could probably be marketed with an anosmic ‘seal of approval’!
      I visited the makers once, in the village of Roquefort. Vast caves beneath hills on which the sheep graze. Well worth a visit if you happen to be in the Aveyron region of southern France.
