    It's always a good idea to taste your food before adding salt and pepper...

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I don't know why they get offended. I didn't care enough to ask.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Well, then it'll be really offensive when I throw the plate of food across the room.


    I'm the one eating the food, so I'll do what I want to it to make it edible according to my palate. If that turns you into a 5 year old piddling on itself in the sand box, then it's your problem.

    Salt and peper are like part of the 'Cooking 101' class. It's a basic and essential part of cooking. So..if you pride yourself on being able to cook well and someone clearly 'disagrees' with that by adding that very basic thing that every cook should have done to their dish....

    I think their pride kinda suffers at that point

    Some people just have really really fragile egos.

    Not offensive to do so but it's pretty stupid to do it before you taste it. I agree with Edison:

    “Thomas Edison is reported to have tested anyone he was thinking about hiring. He would invite them to have a bowl of soup with them. Anyone adding salt without first tasting the soup failed his test. He didn’t want anyone making decisions based upon unfounded assumptions.”

    I think it's a habit for some people and they have become accustomed to doing it more than requiring it for taste. I'm never offended if they salt and pepper my cooking. I'd rather have them do that than trying to season it in a way I can't duplicate.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Oh, that brings back bad memories... there was a kid when I was growing up who would do the same thing. It was worse, as I consider ketchup absolutely disgusting, and wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole (yeah, it's some sort of phobia, I think). This kid would (apparently) put it on/in everything -- including hot chocolate and pancakes.

    I just like salt and pepper. More than most people would think. I used to eat dinner with a large varied group with various tastes on a regular basis, so I tend to assume that most cooks minimize spices. I mean, it's a lot easier for spice-lovers to add some than it is for spice-haters to take some out, no?

    I'll make them eat the table cloth, then I'll innocently ask " salt?"
