How-to inculturate food flavors
« on: January 24, 2014, 08:11:53 PM »
Hello, does anyone have experience in acculturating different food flavors to change the palate on the tongue? Cheeseburgers and cokes are unappetizing. How about something with a South-American Chilean dish spicy flavor? ..

How about Chilean Sea-Bass in a habanero glaze, washed down with some H2SO4?

I do mostly home cooking so can't enjoy processed foods.  Your palate does change if you stay away from the salty, overly sweet, chemical laden foods

I don't know much about southwestern flavors, but try googling natural flavor affinities.  Chefs learn these so they can whip up culinary masterpieces without needing a recipe.   Some things just go well together and different ethnic culinary traditions have their own list of flavor affinities.  I tend to like paprika, garlic, dill and marjoram since I'm used to Balkan flavors. And Christmas is all about poppyseed, apricots and walnuts.

 This seems to be a good list of different flavor affinities paired by culture:

The book Culinary Artistry by Dornenburg and Page is good.  It doesn't just list spice affinities but other vegetable and fruits that just go together.  Then you can use these to plan a full meal that just works.

Chilean food isn't spicy.

Then why the heck did they name their country Chili? (sorry)

Hehehehe. ;)

WPM, I thought you were from Texas?  Talk with some of the good folks of the Mexican restaurants near you.  There are a variety of regional cuisines in Mexico that vary from flavorfully spicy (varieties in seasonings) to full-on, burn-your-face-off spicy.  Also, start cooking more.  Go to the grocery store and try different typesof meat and vegetables.  Some grocery stores will have free recipe cards and all the ingredients you need nearby.  Also, ask your butcher about ways to prepare meats.

Coke is fine... Pepsi is better.  :angel:

How to do all that stuff? My guess would be start adapting to that lifestyle.

You like Pepsi.  I don't.  How's that hating?

Besides, everyone knows Dr. Pepper sweetened with cane sugar is much better.   :) Or a homemade ginger beer.

See, that's where you're wrong.

I see you haven't had cane sugar-sweetened Dr. Pepper.  Or homemade ginger beer.  That is very wrong. :laugh:

I've had canned ginger beer and it was very drinkable.  As to this Dr. Pepper sans corn...where do I find this?  Tell me now.

You're in luck.  It used to be that you could only find it through the Dublin, TX bottling plant, but they were forced to stop doing that by the Dr. Pepper group.  Fortunately, the Dr. Pepper-Snapple group makes the cane sugar variety.  http://www.dpsgproductfacts.com/product/DR_PEPPER_SUGAR_20

I went to my local grocer and asked them to stock it and they did.  Simple as that!
