Savory Scents

candles that smell like food.

So we have candles that smell like pies, flowers, even rain. Why not a candle that smells like, say, pot roast, potato and leek soup, malagatanay, mac n cheese? Imagine for a moment...walking into someone's house, and smelling Thanksgiving dinner-- all the time. Of course, you can't really manufacture the "love" factor of a home cooked meal, and there arises the whole question of how to satiate the hunger that comes with the tantalizing smell. Maybe it could come with a recipe book...or a meal pill, like in the Jetson's or meal gum in Willie Wonka...

Mulligatawny Soup http://www.recipezaar.com/4891
As it is usually spelled. [jutta, Dec 18 2005]

Used to have a "Buttered Mashed Potatoes" flavor, sadly, now just the usual spice- and sweets-based ones. [jutta, Dec 18 2005]

       This'll only make people fatter. Keep it away from America.

       It's a type of British soup invented to imitate soups tasted in India during the rise of the empire, It means literally "Pepper-water".

       Growing up, I always thought it was Irish (Mulligan and all that). Only when I went to India, where it is still served, I realized it maybe had a different origin.
