    KNow what Monica felt like. I have been brought up and learnt cooking the same way. I still cook that way. 🙂

    Very interesting, Monica. This is indeed new to me because my nani, who has grown up in Hyderabad and makes exceptional Indian food, tastes as she progresses. of course, we aren't Hindus, and that kinda explains it.

    I love this line in Monica's essay: "When you least expect it, culture shows up." It's perfect. I've really enjoyed this guest-writer series.

    I do the same when I cook, not with everything but it does happen, I also like to lick a bit the remnants of a cake mix picked from the bowl.

    What a delightful story! Glad I didn't grow up with those rules, though. I would have missed out on licking so many cake batter bowls!

    That's funny and lovely. I hope my daughter has some stories to tell. . since I'm about to pick up the phone at 9:16 p.m. to order my dinner. Sigh!

    That is fascinating to me. You must have an entirely different developed dimension of "taste" if you learned to cook without ever tasting it!
