|Nuthatch meditates for flavors|
Nuthatch has been experimenting with new flavors ever since falling out of a tree at the age of 45 and losing his sense of taste. An avid food eater before his fall, he says he woke up craving an ice cream sundae covered with chopped onions, pickle relish, and chocolate syrup. Unable to order such a sundae at his local dairy quick, he purchased the ingredients at the grocery store and has not looked back.
What's in store for those willing to assault their sense of taste? Nuthatch wouldn't divulge too much, but did have a few samples ready for this reporter. I was blindfolded and taken to Nuthatch's test kitchen where I was introduced to the following: Burnt toast flavored pudding, pickled asparagus in strawberry maple syrup, pancakes smothered with ketchup, and long johns infused with jalapeno mustard. Each item was accompanied with hot thistle tea. As I am dieting, I was unable to try any of the tempting new flavors, but plan to at a future date.
Nuthatch hopes to have his web site Food Moods up and running by this time next week. Until then he says, "We will have to remain bored with our food."
