Why Does This Taste So Good?! – Classic Eats Teardown | Modern Kitchen Craft

Hello everyone. Over the past few weeks I've been exploring the topic of TASTE quite a bit. I wrote this post to take a look at why the things we love taste so great.

The answer? Contrast.

By contrasting the primary tastes, you can easily create food that is interesting - not just for the first three bites, but for the last bite as well.

Here's an example of something delicious I made recently that has a lot of flavor (and texture) contrast

Soft parmesan polenta, with a spicy tomato sauce and fried calamari ontop.

All together it was a great marriage of spicy, creamy, cheesy, tangy and crispy goodness.

Check out the article for some of the CLASSIC things we love to eat and what makes them tick.

Also - What is your favorite thing to eat? Does it fit the mold (high contrast) or break it?
