Can you tell what a dish 'needs'?

Peg | Dec 7, 2011 12:31 PM

When I'm cooking I taste as I go and although I can tell a dish needs 'something' I can not always discern what exactly is needed. This can lead to me adding a bit of this, a bit of that - until I end up with something inedible or a bowl of something drowned in sriracha or ketchup. Or both.

What do you reach for when a savoury dish needs 'something'?
