Memories on your plate - Returning from the hunt

Memories on your palate

The flavours and aromas of the foods we love are etched in our memory. They are part of our personal food heritage—an array of sensations and recollections deeply rooted in who we are.

This puzzle of memory and taste may also be related to the territory. When we pack foods in our luggage or receive a care package full of tasty treats from home, the memory of place make the flavours more meaningful. Fish from a fishing trip, moose from a hunting trip, chocolate from a trip to Switzerland or a spice that is impossible to find at home but which is essential in a traditional recipe all serve as links between food and territory.

Often, these foods are like a small celebration, a moment to remember. Meals become more than nourishment for the body. They also nourish the spirit.
