It took me until my third year in college to learn that, when I get a salad or make a sandwich at the deli, the thing I find really delicious that is seasoning up the dish is onions.
Three years on-and-off of various combinations, trying to determine what it is in this combined ingredient group that I think tastes so good.
What you can get out of this is, I don’t pay much attention to things and I could never be a taste tester for anything because it’s tough for me to distinguish one ingredient from another when it’s in a combination.
"Hey, I made this soup with a little more garlic, can you tell me if you think this is better?"
"Well, I can tell you right now that it tastes like a soup but if you get me in three years, I can report back at least one of the flavors to you. Just send me my paycheck in 2017."
