the more i learn about cooking and recreating the flavours of my favourite dishes, the closer i come to the conclusion that the magic secret to the delicious flavours of the world is: salt

food 

@pisscotheque don't let anyone tell you that pink himalayan salt is better either. there is NO DIFFERENCE

food 

@dockers looking at it you would expect it to taste of strawberries or a beautiful flower. but NO

food 

@pisscotheque it’s one!

but there’s a holy food trinity of three other things which, if something seems close but not quite there, it’s likely missing one of these three things

food 

@patience @pisscotheque
Ah yes, the holy trinity

- Garlic
- Some garlic
- More garlic 🧄

food 

@g1comics @pisscotheque garlic is one of the three,

along with lemon

and plain yoghurt

food 

@g1comics @pisscotheque my bestest friend in the whole world taught me this, and tho i forget some of the other stuff, this one i always try to remember

food 

@patience @g1comics haha yeah i always have a bottle of lemon juice in my fridge for when something "needs something"

food 

@pisscotheque @g1comics admittedly, my go-to is lime (most of the year, they’re cheap enough to have extra handy), but same basic thing!

food 

@patience @g1comics i also lean heavily on soy sauce and korean chilli paste for the savoury flavours. the creaminess aspect is usually already covered by me frying everything in lots of butter ^.^;

food 

@patience yeah!! i usually think of the other ones as like "creamy" and "tangy" flavours. and maybe also sweet? but that last one seems less important

food 

@pisscotheque

the magic ingredient in a lot of bread-related foods is salty butter, so you may be on to something there.

want to make a better croissant? add more butter.
