    same here I never add salt to anything

    this is why i don't cook for others! haha

    well, i'm not very skilled in the kitchen, so i tend to mask things with hot sauce, garlic, lemon, etc. i started salting foods pretty recently, and it's a habit i'd like to kick.

    however, i really have come to appreciate subtle flavors in better cooking at the same time.

    all in all, i understand.. sort of.. the exasperation a cook might feel, but different strokes!

    Yep, this. And the thing about not adding salt and pepper before you've even tasted the food.

    And if I am serving you a steak and you immediately drown it in steak sauce, it makes me make a mental note never to waste a good steak on you again.

    Whose plate is it anyway?

    I cannot believe the level of bigotry in this thread, in which people assume that unless you share their taste, you don't have taste... or are otherwise somehow personally unworthy. The application of condiments to food (even steak sauce on a steak, Tallulah) is no reflection on character. It may be the reflection of the relative sensitivity an individual's taste buds and olfactory sensors.

    Tolerance, people... tolerance.

    But seriously, if you're just going to drown the food in other tastes, why bother buying or making good food? It's a waste of time and effort.

    And who was it, exactly, that granted you authority to be the final arbiter of what I, or some other dinner guest, should consider good food?

    The blending of flavors on a plate is a matter of personal preference. As a culinary explorer I'll try anything once... but I refuse to let someone else judge me as some sort of Neanderthal because I prefer my sashimi with a touch of wasabe and soy.

    People who put steak sauce on a good steak don't have good taste. Or just don't like steak.


    (I don't like steak).

    ...and why would you assume that the manky slab of camel meat that Tallulah puts in front of you is a 'good steak'?

    like I said... try the food first and then season all you want... :rolli:

    It's presumptuous to season before trying (like I do with pepper ) but if you don't like it after you've tried it you have a right to modify it

    This thread appears not to recognize that there is a middle ground between no/minimal seasoning and drowning food in salt or condiments. Salt, pepper, and other spices enhance food when used judiciously. I think it's just as silly to not season your food at all as it is to obscure the taste with gobs of ketchup or salt. Seasoning is like makeup on women. When you eat out, your food is probably salted and spiced when you get it but you don't taste it overtly. Just like properly applied makeup looks like you're not wearing any.

    Just sayin.
