A kindred kitchen spirit: Ninkasi

Tuesday, November 27, 2007

I stumbled across this wonderful descriptor of the Sumerian goddess Ninkasi while listening to a Splendid Table podcast: “you who fill my mouth so full.”

While she is notably embraced by the brewing community, I can’t help but feel she’s a spirit who speaks to my kitchen realm too.

Wasn’t aware that this was a child of Enki too…should have done my homework better (am an archaeology of the Near East student).

Now I need to head over to the Concordia Ale House for a pint of Jamie’s IPA.
