in the future, will have a small chemical recombiner with a small ionizer behind it that will “read” smells and then “push out” a digitized version of the smell across the Internet.

That’s awesome smile emoticon A challenge I know you will succeed in! I look forward to the day when our computers/tablets/phones as they are in the future, will have a small chemical recombiner with a small ionizer behind it that will “read” smells and then “push out” a digitized version of the smell across the Internet. 

They’ll figure it out if they havent’ already – then I’d be able to smell your creation and imagine all the components smile emoticon

[actually _reading_ a few of the ingredients can activate the imagination in a similar way]

After it’s all done, be sure to post what you did/how you did it. I enjoy imagining the taste of foods when I read the ingredients. smile emoticon

Well there’s definitely different levels of complexity in the preparation of the entire meal. Pennsylvania Dutch style, which was influenced by the Amish and Quakers alike, is big on having an equal variety of sweets and sours for example.An old expression was, “7 sweets and 7 sours” – the sours being pickles and other acidics, and the sweets being, welll, sweets. 

That’s all that comes to mind off hand as something you might not know.

Growing up in New Jersey, I simply consider the Pennsylvania Dutch style, “classic America”, even though I know it’s Germanic in origin. [hence: Dutch – Deutsch – but it has its own uniquely American flair]

Growing up, this cookbook, reprinted many times since the early 1900s, this being the 1976 edition, is my template for “regular American cooking”, although I know now it’s Pennsylvania Dutch – even when it does ethnic dishes. Very simple cooking, very few ingredients.

Unfortunately, the later editions changed all of the recipies, which is a shame. Our copy is worn out and kept in a bag now, as it lost its binding years ago.

One day I’ll scan it all, if somebody hasn’t already.
