Could "better the next day" be a myth?

Bill on Capitol Hill | Oct 28, 2006 02:09 AM

I've long believed -- and I think I've experienced -- the conventional wisdom that dishes such as chili, stews and lasagna taste better when reheated, after "the flavors have had a chance to meld."

But has anyone put that theory to a blind test? It occurs to me that maybe the second-day version tastes better because I'm not tasting it right off the heat and burning my mouth in the process.
