“essentially a literary gossip column” – CK Stead, 18 April 2010
A good root will smell lightly of walnuts, while
one that’s gone bad during transport will smell anywhere from slightly rancid
to giving off an aroma of moth balls.
Quite right. I have always suspected this. It is an excellent thing to have it confirmed, and in a cook book too
And what root would that be, je prie?
Manioc, aka cassava. I don't think I have ever seen it in NZ, not even at the Avondale market, but at least I now know how it should smell.
