Did you ever go into a Bakery and say , ” boy does it smell good in here ” the smell of freshly baked bread, the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg. Or go into a Restaurant and the first thing you notice is the smell coming out the kitchen door, the smell of garlic, the sweet perfume of fresh herbs making your nose twitch and your eyes light up. We do smell with our eyes when it comes to cooking and baking, even before we have a chance to see the food! We have it in our minds that the food must be good, but will it look good? Then you see the food. Does it look good enough to eat? Is it decorated properly? Is it cooked right? Is it burnt? Is it undercooked? We taste it. Does it taste good?Does it taste bad? Is it old? Has it gone bad?
All these things are weighed when we cook or bake for somebody. Does it smell good? Use fresh products, herbs, and spices to attract your customer. Does it look good? Make sure it looks good on a plate and is eye appealing and has good color.Does it taste good? Taste your product and critique it. Would you like to be served this if you were paying good money for it?
If all these tests are done, It will be good, and you will be proud of your self that you created the finest product possible.
