Amuse Tete

Filed under: Writing — Hillary Davis @ 4:14 pm

I was thinking of words like amuse buche or amuse geules—those mini tastes served before your meal arrives that are meant to tantalize your taste buds and encourage you to want more. And I wondered, if when I write about food, if I could find just the perfect amuse-buche-words to tantalize and produce a mouth-watering response.

The scent of pine. The texture of sea foam. My heart turneth over when I saw kind of words.

But they amuse tete.

A bit different. They nourish a different part than amuse geules do. Put them together and they nourish the whole.
