Scent down memory lane

Reading about how much impact the smell of a hibiscus flower had on Dallas Wiens, the first full face transplant recipient, recently I was reminded of just how valuable our senses are, and how we can often take them for granted.  I love how a simple whiff or taste of something can take you right back to a time or place and really bring that memory to life.

It got me wondering? what tastes and smells do that for you?

Sunflower SurpriseFrom talking about this in the office, I've just been reminded of a post we did a while back on Edible Flowers.  The number and variety of flowers and flavours is incredible and sure to offer something for everyone's tastes!  I'm also left feeling quite excited thinking about the new smells we have to look forward to as more and more Summer flowers­ are coming into season.  I can't wait to get a whiff of the lovely arrangements that could soon be on their way out to you!

I had no idea you could eat flowers! I think I may have to try using them in desserts - that'll impress the guests.I had a cold last week and lost my sense of smell as a result - it really hinders eating! You don't realise how much of taste relies on smell..
