A Gourmet’s Delight

Complex layers of flavor
Melding on the tongue
Into a savory effusion
Of gastronomic delight

Courses surrender
As taste buds recapture
Moments of inspiration
And memories of other repasts

Aromatic sensations
Tantalizing visions
Perfection of presentation
Rarefied new tastes

Joyous salutations
To chefs no longer with us
Escoffier and Child
Purveyors of good taste

And to the future entrées
With keen anticipation
Long live the gourmet dinner
The multi-course cuisine
