I have been hoping for a food thread, I would have started one on my own but I was thinking more on the lines of nutrition, however even though i worked in lots of kitchens i never developed an ability to appreciate "complex flavours" (i love crispy chicken and bbq sauce wit f loads of mayo)
Im into dolmadas at the moment, theres hot weather and they are refreshing little meditteranian things, you dont get sick of them either, i have also been eating really good ravioli check this out;
get some fresh pasta sheets, some chorizo and garden peas, mach the chorizo wiv da peas, pop it in little stamped out pasta circles, seal it wiv olive oil, and pop it in a pan of salty boiling water for bout 2 mins (maybe steam them if they fall apart)--thas good and easy too like wam bam.
I also like to cook chanterelle mushrooms in a white wine cream shallot and gruer cheese sauce, ask me for help cooking if your planning something special i ran kitchens by shouting at people telling them what to do, im sure i could tell you in type
Did you know different people taste different things slightly differently!
descriptions on the backs of wine bottles only suit 1 in a category of 8 different tasters! the radio is good for food discussion on food and drink radio 4 they were talking about introducing a number system and a test!
however theres no such thing as having a developed pallete its a total myth for pretentiousness and marketing, its down to attitude, for example; 85% dark chocolate is bitter however you are tasting the coco and not the sugar, meditate on the dark chocolate for a while and you will look for milk chocolate bars which actually taste of chocolate in future (but in america its pointless you dont have chocolate you have filth and clay with chocolate flavourings)
I believe theres a lot of pretentiousness and tradition in food, caviar is just about a texture you couldnt appreciate unless you were rich, there realy isnt anything more than salty fishyness with a peppery taste, recently the queens chef found out he was using cheap caviar in the wrong tins for years! no one noticed.
