Comment of the Week

“It’s easier if you remember to salt food at every step in the cooking process, and add as much as possible as early as possible. If you only salt at the end, everything tastes much saltier than it is. And by the way, I can recommend plain salted yoghurt: much tastier than without salt, and can take enormous amounts of salt. Salted dark chocolate is good too though.”
