As I get older, so many of my travel souvenirs are food and drink. What power has taste to evoke memory, induce reminiscence!
Chicago was popcorn and celery salt. Ireland was Bewley’s tea and dillisk and carrageen. And Scotland? Ardbeg Uigedail and Marmite, chutney and cocoa balsamic. On a night as dark as this, I’m savouring what’s left and dreaming of my next trip.
