Mensagem:  The verb "to whet" is used in the expression "to whet one´s appetite" for sth, which means to stimulate, to make one be interested in sth. But can it be used for food as well?


- The good smell coming from the kitchen whetted my appetite. (Is it correct? Or is there any other verb to mean that?)
