Eat for Every Taste

Published on 12 April 2024 at 10:26

I have a theory that's completely unproven. You tell me if you think there's something to it. My theory is that the more tastebuds a meal touches, the higher the chance of satisfaction. Also, textures matter. With this in mind, creating a well-balanced meal means more than adding up macros. It means trying to include something a little bitter, a little sweet, salty, sour, and umami in every meal. Don't they teach something like this in culinary school? Flavors balance each other and add to the robustness of the meal. 

Kind of like, "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" approach to diet (the whole alphabet in one sentence). Why not?

What meal can you think of that uses maximum tastes and textures?
