Humans have very strong scent memory. Tell us about a smell that transports you.
My mother was a very good cook, she was able to turn an ordinary vegetable into a very tasty dish. When I came home on holidays from the university my mother would cook all my favorite foods, the smell before I went into the house made me hungry.
Whenever I go to a dinner invitation by a family from Bangladesh I think of my mother, what a marvelous cook she was and she hardly cooked anything that was not yummy. Unconsciously I compare the hosts cooking with my mom’s, my mom’s cooking is better than theirs.
Each one of her dishes had an aroma which drew families to our house, they appreciated it, and always wanted to know her method of cooking.
One of her famous food was pound cake, she did such a good job with it, no one not even the pastry shops were comparable.I guess I’m a bit partial.
