What different skills did you require to test a dish apart from just to cook it?
It’s like all our senses work together when it comes to taste a dish. Your eyes can help you figure out whether the dish has been cooked perfectly or not. For example, by looking at the color of the vegetables being tossed in oil one can figure out whether they are done or not.
Your nose can help you figure whether the dish is undercooked or overcooked by just smelling it. For example, Just like lasagna if uncooked smells like refined flour. You can also smell and figure out a lot of key ingredients like rose water or any spices added. Your touch can help you figure out whether the dish was cooked perfectly and is the temperature accurate.
