TYLER FLORENCE: Hi. I’m Tyler Florence here with a GMC Trade Secret.
Now, when it comes to cooking and seasoning food, your tongue responds to four flavors: spicy, sour, salty and sweet. Now, if you’re cooking at home and your food tastes good but it doesn’t taste delicious, you might want to try just a couple of drops of any of the four of these to create a very delicious, well-rounded flavor.
Let’s start with the first one. That’s spicy. Now, spicy is everything from a splash of hot sauce, so a couple of shaves of fresh chili, which is great in everything from fresh scrambled eggs to tomato sauce. A little bit of chili heat goes a long way, and it’s one of my favorites.
Now, the next one’s going to be sour. Now, that’s generally vinegar or fresh citrus juice, which tastes really good in everything from vinaigrettes to fresh-squeezed lime juice in a beer. Citrus and sour is a really great flavor to really make your mouth salivate.
Now, the one in the back, and that’s salty, and it’s probably the most important one, because it’s going to take what you’re cooking and make it taste naturally even better. And it comes in everything from anchovies to olives to kosher salt. Don’t be afraid of it. Salt is really great, and it makes your food taste absolutely delicious.
And, last but not least, it’s sweet. Now, the sweet flavor is going to balance out everything else. It’s going to make the chili heat taste less so, but really delicious. It’s going to make the sour taste even fresher. And it’s going to balance out the salt the way peanut butter brittle tastes delicious, or even pork chops and apple sauce.
I’m Tyler Florence, and those are my tips on how to season food with spicy, sour, salty and sweet.
