"maybe all restaurant cooks should be routinely tested for sensitivity to the basic seasonings" - Harold McGee

This is really interesting as I love white pepper and use it in most of my food in place of black pepper unless the recipe specifically calls for black pepper. And I agree with him on testing for sensitivity to seasonings!

  1. I love it. Some people have no "sense of spice". My wife is one of them having been raised in a cooking environment where salt and pepper were "spices". I think some people have an innate sense of "spice", some can be trained, some are tone deaf to spice. :)
