    Taste of spices

    Yeasty taste

    Do you know how bakery pizza has that "taste" to it? Like the dough has a lot of yeast in it or something? I love that taste, whatever it is. Does anyone know what that actually is?

    What pre-made dishes taste better to you when you doctor them up?

    I normally don't do pre-made dishes on account that they are so wicked salty. I'm on a low-sodium diet. But some cooks do that. So what about you? Do you find this practice necessary? Or do you just leave the dish as is & just 'wing it'? :wink:

It seems that is flavour had been bred out of it by growers looking for bigger tomatoes because they think people want bigger fruit and also a bigger tomato means more money when each tomato is picked by...
