    Which Food Smell 10th Jul 18 at 8:54 AM
    Gets your juices flowing the most?
    Which one is it that makes you want that taste in your mouth as soon as possible?

    Cooked or raw, everyone has a food smell that turns their head, what is yours?

    Mine are quite basic really, burnt toast and bacon make me want to go straight home and have some.

    I do like the smell of bread baking but it is usually because I am baking it to eat anyway that discounts it from my desires

    Burnt toast for me (which is hard as next door to us in work we have a coffee roasters & when they roast the beans it smells like burnt toast!!).


    Also the moment a piece of steak hits the pan!

    Dau enaid ond un taith.

    Fresh Bread.


    Ofcourse they say it's 'piped in' that supermarkets use (as they just reheat frozen loaves).

    I enjoy the aroma of freshly baked bread, home made stew, curries and bacon.

    What I don't like the smell of though I like them to eat is a kipper.

    The Turkish takeaway/restaurant near me. Sometimes the smell wafts towards my home.

    Anything garlicky

    Chip shop

    Bacon, frying onions, garlic, fresh bread baking, coffee, toast and chips.

    But I find that chips almost invariably smell better than they taste.
    There - in that place; they're - they are; their - owned by them.
    If you have nothing constructive to say, just move along.
