[From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: ] “A PANTRY is a room where food, provisions, dishes, or linens are stored and served in an ancillary capacity to the kitchen. The derivation of the word is from the same source as the Old French term paneterie; that is from pain, the French form of the Latin panis for bread.”

Hello, I’m Miss Morninglory, you can read about me on my Wall. My pantry is a secret place in my head where I privately visit, usually in the morning at breakfast time, in order to keep me from becoming the blur of busy days going by. This blog is a drip of fun food for thought about culture, politics, science, male versus female, the universe, and anything else that tickles me, usually triggered by the dissonant news of the day found in the morning’s scan of the BBC News for iPad mesh of featured, most shared and most popular listings. (There is always SOMETHING.)
An AMUSE-BOUCHE or amuse-gueule is a single, bite-sized hors d’oeuvre. The term is French, literally meaning mouth amuser. Amuse-bouches aim to prepare the guest for the meal and to offer a glimpse into the chef’s approach to cooking. They can be served before the start of the meal and in between courses. They are different from appetizers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons, but are offered for free and according to the chef’s selection alone.
