A rising desire to entertain brothers providing heavenly food (8)


I believe the answer is:


'heavenly food' is the definition.
(ambrosia is the food of the greek gods)

'a rising desire to entertain brothers' is the wordplay.
'rising' is a reversal indicator (going up in a down clue).
'desire' becomes 'aim' (I've seen this in another clue).
'to entertain' is an insertion indicator.
'brothers' becomes 'bros'.
'aim' reversed gives 'mia'.
'mia' enclosing 'bros' is 'mbrosia'.

'providing' is the link.

(Other definitions for ambrosia that I've seen before include "Gods' dinner?" , "Wonderful food" , "fine fuel" , "I'm so Arab (anagram)" , "luxury food" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
