Foodie word of the day: Ambrosia

Ambrosia

 

In ancient Greek mythologyambrosia (Greek: ἀμβροσία) is sometimes the food or drink of the Greek gods (or demigods), often depicted as conferring ageless immortality upon whoever consumed it.

Ambrosia is very closely related to the gods’ other form of sustenance, nectar. Both nectar and ambrosia are fragrant, and may be used as perfume.
