Those meals we had savoured in our minds, the diverse flavours which our adventurous selves had vowed to experiment. Those carefree mornings, though few but complete with sensuous lovemaking and a bagel and coffee to follow.

For those of you who don't already know or guess, I am a nerd (self-confess and I own … Continue reading Science and romantic love
