For me, aromas are an important part of the cooking experience, and one reason why I love cooking so much. I enjoy smelling my food at each stage, and following the changes with my eager and curious nose!
It is incredibly difficult to choose, but if I have to, my top five aromas are:
1. Fresh ginger
2. Fresh fruit, especially strawberries.
3. Warm milk.
4. Stews with wine
5. Garlic frying in olive oil
Oh God, any chance I can squeeze the 6th one in…? How about vegetable tagine with cinnamon? Mmmmmmm…..
What are your favourite food aromas? 🙂
