I’ve discovered a new pleasure! A new yeast extract, previously unknown to me! Thanks to my daughter elfbabe, I now possess and am enjoying the taste of Cenovis, a Swiss product. She had it flown all the way from said Helvetican Republic in time to be my Xmas present!
It definitely is different from marmite, vegemite, mighty mite, aussie mite, and even promite. It’s got lovely earthy undertones those others lack, and on a toasted english muffin with melted butter, is truly divine! Check out the above link for a close analysis of my new passion.
I know I’m tough to shop for. But this has been elfbabe’s year to knock it out of the park in terms of gifts. First it was a 3-D depth map of Lake Michigan, now proudly mounted on the living room wall, and now this. Thanks, hon!
(A previous effort by elfbabe’s younger sister, a sketch of JRRT smoking his pipe and surrounded by phrases in Quenya, written in Tengwar, also resides on the list of “Greatest gifts ever”).
