Food & Drink

favourite foods




It seems to me that taste is only one small part of what makes us decide on a favourite food. It can’t simply be flavour, but the rich associations it brings to mind every time we bite into something. What makes pizza really just delicious — the right tomatoes, cheese and crust and the right interplay between them, or is it those ingredient combine to summon just the right echoes of comfort, happiness and safety? Just what are we really experiencing every time we indulge in our favourite meal, dessert or drink? Perhaps it’s one of the few ways we can safely revisit a past that would otherwise be lost to us. What will your favourite meal of the future be, Sof? I really wonder.
