enchanting aromatic foods

'He lay back for a little while in his bed thinking about the smells of food, of the greasy horror of fried fish and the deeply moving smell that came from it; of the intoxicating breath of bakeries and the dullness of buns... He planned dinners of enchanting aromatic foods that should be carried under the nose, snuffed and thrown to the dogs... endless dinners in which one could alternate flavour with flavour from sunset to dawn without satiety, while one breathed great draughts of brandy' Evelyn Waugh Vile Bodies

Whilst I'm typing this out the delightful scent of Julia Child's Coq au vin, as cooked by Warmth is enchantingly floating up the stairs.
Hope you had a weekend of eating delicious food.


  1. Right now I am dreaming of cheese boards and gorgeous wines, desserts made with cranberries and pumpkins, and a pomegranate meringue I just saw on someone's blog. I hope the coq au vin was delicious!

    1. Sunday - Lovely to hear from you, how are you and your family? Pomegranate merinfue sounds delicious.
