    Blackcurrants, truffles and truffle oil, and goats' chese, milk and butter.

    I like sweet flavours and most people like a bit of sweet - we are hardwired to.

    So does a MacDonald's taste good even though it is bad for one.

    I think that people like alcoholic flavours because they are wired later on into our brains with the reaction we have to the drug, Pavlovian style.

    Cocaine users may find that even before they even take the drug, the nerves which respond to serotonin which are present throughout the gut may be triggered by their knowing that they are going to have some cocaine soon and they might have to go to the lavatory in a hurry.

    So there are certain flavours which we crave because we are hard-wired to enjoy, even though their source is may be bad for us, and other flavours we enjoy because of their association when they are clearly bad for us.

    Junk food is extremely wicked because it is crammed with sweet-salt-sour flavours we instinctively love, but yet has none of the nutritional value of those flavours when they are found raw, in nature.

    I suppose the trick is to train the palette to enjoy what is good for the body.

    BEEF. I love red meat. Also wild salmon. I swear that I get a buzz from smoked, wild salmon. Also, bacon, I absolutely love bacon. I love salty, sour, spicy, and greasy in general but those are the foods I really love. My nickname as a child was carnivorous kate!

    The taste of tomato (salad, juice, sauce) drives me crazy, and most vegetables in general.

    Cheeses - feta, roquefort or blue cheese, yellow cheeses and all that.

    Mushrooms - grilled, or in white cream sauce.

    I like bittersweet, sweet and sour, and primarily semi-sweet tastes, such as lemon pie & cheese cake, while I detest strongly sweet flavors that make your mouth feel sticky.

    That said, I am generally happy on fresh and boiled veggies, and cheese.

    It's cider season

    Near where I live in southern California there's a locally famous little apple grove area called Oak Glen. There's a couple of places there that make fresh pressed apple cider and then run it up to my grocery store in Lake Arrowhead. One of those ciders is unpasteurized and otherwise un-messed with. It is the very embodiment of Life as Apples. It's unbelievably good cider, and given that this time of year is completely dominated by it (in my house), it is the Winner of "What taste makes me happy". I wish everybody could have some. I'm going downstairs right now to have a giant, cold glass of it.

    Two nights ago, I made apple sauce (from those Oak Glen apples), and grilled pork chops in an apple glaze over an oak fire outside, prepared mashed yams with brown sugar and lots of salted butter, and washed it all down with about half a gallon of THAT CIDER. Yup. That's good livin'.

    Milk chocolate!

    The various flavours of milk chocolate that were contained in this bag made/make me very happy: Cornet Doré, Mendiant Milk, Plaisir, Bonbon 13 and Astrid.

    'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.
