The January 2005 issue of delicious.magazine has a section on gastrology, where ‘top astrologer Shelley von Strunckel explains how star signs influence your tastes and cooking style’.
My entry states:
Taureans are all about delicate colours, fresh scents and the glowing light of an early spring day. They’re sensual and adore luxury but retain the practicality of a sensible Earth sign. They love the good life and most feel good food is a big part of that: rich cream, fine meats, aromatic spices and, most of all, sweets.
Classic French cuisine – with its complex sauces, extravagant desserts and elegant presentation – is pure Taurus. They also obtain exactly the right ingredients, know and adore fine wines, have the best in kitchen equipment and know how to use it – many may have done cookery courses.
Although Taureans devise delicious menus, a large proportion have a particular resistance to trying anything unfamiliar, and this particularly applies to Taurean children. Still, even the pickiest buckle when faced with a luscious pudding, particularly if it’s rich in chocolate.
Circumstances will force most Taureans to broaden their gastronomic world in 2005 – possibly through travel for business, a friendship that brings new flavours or even health concerns. It’s a rare Taurean who embraces change with gusto but, once interested, they’ll become enthusiasts.
Key flavours: sensual, sweet, flavourful
Traditional herbs and aromas: sorrel, rose, sandalwood
There are couple of things to say about this ‘gastrological’ statement, but not now. I'll be back.
Meanwhile, I know there are some other Taurean foodbloggers out there who might want to comment:)
