“Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains; another, a moonlit beach; a third, a family dinner of pot roast and sweet potatoes during a myrtle-mad August in a Midwestern town” (Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses).
Americans have many universal scents that brIng memories and the comforts of home. Like… freshly baked bread with coffee and maybe… vanilla.
And that leads to memory of bread pudding!
