Savory Meat, Food

SAVORY MEAT, FOOD (רֵיחַ, H8194, מַטְעַמִּ֛ים, ὀσμή, G4011, taste, flavor). The classic use of “savory” is illustrated in the story of Rebekah when she is instructing Jacob prior to bestowal of the birthright to kill a brace of choice goats from the flock “that I [Rebekah] may prepare from them savory food for your father [Isaac], such as he loves” (Gen 27:9). It was obviously an esp. tasty dish, cooked with different kinds of vegetables. Elaboration of the term passed on to the kindred sense of smell (Gen 8:21) and to the fig. usage of reputation (Exod 5:21).
