texture vs creaminess

sweetpotato | Jul 24, 2010 10:39 AM

On shows like Top Chef, I often hear the tasters complaining that a dish doesn't have
texture. What does that mean, specifically? I have an idea of what "texture" would feel like in the mouth, yet I also hear so many shows describing their food as "creamy". My assumption is that
"creamy" is the opposite of "having texture"......but certainly they are describing a dish as
"creamy" in a GOOD way.

Do all dishes HAVE to have texture to be good?
Can you give me an example of something, say a sandwich, that has texture, versus a sandwich that does not?

(hope this makes sense to someone, LOL)

Thanks, Sue
