Seasoned Eating

It seems obvious to me now that I should taste the food I’m preparing and tweak the seasonings, if necessary. But it wasn’t something I did automatically, until the idea was stressed in a cooking class I once took.

If you follow recipes without sampling, you’re likely to end up with disappointing results. Ingredients vary in flavor and potency, ovens cook at different temperatures, and palates aren’t all the same.

So even if the recipe doesn’t remind you to season to taste, always do it anyway.
