I have always given my mom the credit for my abilities to pull and define components when smelling and tasting wine. I was very young when my mother lost her eyesight to a brain tumor and in the early 1970's Colbalt Treatment diminished her senses of taste and smell.
Despite her disability, she sensed she would have a short time on earth and wanted to teach me her love of cooking. Mom would instruct me as I cooked these dishes, then have me describe the smells and tastes to her. OH how she would laugh at some of my descriptions! Mom and I decided that we were the only two people in the world who loved the smell and taste of burnt popcorn.
This month, my mother would have turned 81 years old. I believe every time I intentionally burn popcorn for myself, my mom is smiling down from Heaven and enjoying SEEING me eat that popcorn!
