Culinary Tip: Taste, Taste, Taste

Tasting is a very important part of cooking.  A good chef tastes their food from start to finish.  Tasting helps identify problems early in the cooking process and it also helps with seasoning in layers.  Tasting throughout the cooking process will help you to develop natural cooking instincts and better understand how flavors change and develop.

You know I have tasting spoons all around the Savory Spoon during our cooking classes. I always remind students to taste often. How will you know if the soup even needs salt, if you have not tasted it first?

Don’t rush it. Just taste and savor and learn what your palate likes and appreciates.
Good Luck and practice does make the palate more satisfied.
