This was the essay topic:
French novelist Marcel Proust once described a character recalling vivid memories from childhood after eating a madeleine cookie dipped in tea. Often, senses like taste and smell can cause these “Proustian memories.” Disney Pixar’s Ratatouille showed this moment when Anton Ego, the food critic, takes a bite of ratatouille and remembers his childhood. Talk about a time you had a Proustian memory. What triggered the memory? How far back did it reach? What did you reflect on after remembering that moment? Did it change you or give you a new perspective?
