In Greek mythology, the best of the men are not men but Gods. And they are not expected to have anything but the finest.
Godsí ambrosia is sometimes the food, sometimes the drink, of the gods, often depicted as conferring ageless immortality upon whoever consumes it.
Ambrosia is of such scintillating taste that mare mortals could only dream and wonder. It is something that people desperately tried to find, to create all that makes for a great story but it contains within itself the pursuit of perfection. Food is not just a means of survival but is an experience to be savoured. And ambrosia, as the food of the heavens, is the ultimate benchmark for that experience.
