-Sense of Taste According to Climate.
An ssqulrsd taste In not to be renson
td with, so it has be -n ssesrtsd, hut It
is probable that climate has something
to say Yn such matters. It Is a fact
not so a* '* might be that
the ran*? ' cooks season
their dishes s<-*ardlng to the zone In
wjilph thug find themselves. When
Sidney Smith heard a bore complain
that a boor t h«d Interrupted his dis
course concerning the North Pole, 4)3
"It Is not surprising. Why, Just the
other dsy I heard that felloe speak dls.
respectfully of the equator.”
Now, unlike the tone referred to, the
cook who understands his or t»er busi
ness has respect for latitude end shows
it accordingly. A writer who has thor
oughly studied the subject tells us that
In our own temperate climate French
cooks season with tEsyme. parsley, bay
leaf, chervil and tarragon, ail of which.
It may lie observed, are aromatlp, but
I never, or hardly ever, use ginger, cur
ry, cayenne pepper or allspice.
As we go southward toward the land
where the sun bakes and porches the
earth and Its people all the year round,
It seems strange that the demand In
creases for the hotter seasoning of food.

greater demand tfian the peaches nnd

Here the conk, whether dative or Im
ported from France, thinks but slightly
of the mild seasoning herbs of the tem
perate zone, and appeals to the flag
ging appetite with allspice, ginger, chili
and cayenne pepper. It is true that the
nabob of the lost century, when he re
tunned to England to spend the fortune
he had acquired in India, took his cur
ry with him, and it has remained in
n somewhat modified form, on the Brit
ish bill of fare, but it is an alien that
will never he naturalized. It belongs to
the land of the sun, though why the
denize.ns of a burning climate must
needs have a food that burns in two
senses of tine word, is a question that,
up to the present, has not been satis
factorily answered.—Christian Work.
