Whilst we are on the subject of taste sensations I want to share with you a brilliantly sensual food experience.
To celebrate our engagement, D took me out for breakfast, and there on the breakfast tasting platter was a humble jam doughnut. An unusual breakfast choice, and certainly not very Ayurvedically sensible, but let me tell you, it was a stroke of pure genius. Crisp sugar coated outside, light as air dough, and sticky runny homemade rasberry jam centre. A gourmet favourite, sexed up classic, and best of all you can eat it with your hands, adding another dimension to the sensorial experience.
If you live in Melbourne you can try one at Laurent Bakery in Camberwell.
