How do you get the most flavor out of your recipe?
If you ask me the most important thing you can do to get the best flavors into a recipe it comes down to a few things. First, you must have a competent cook! If your cook has no experience or has no idea what different flavors taste like when mixed with others you will find that that recipe will lack in appeal and flavorings. This same cook must know how to and have the ability to follow a recipe and consistently correctly measure and monitor the addition of ingredients into the recipe.
Second the to get the best flavoring out of your recipe you should always get fresh ingredients. When shopping instead of buying canned vegetables and bottled spices you should try to choose the fresh ingredients by staying away from the prepackaged items. Od f course the price you pay for the fresh ingredients might and probably will be a little more than buying the “dry” ingredients but the payoff in the flavor of the recipe will be greater! And not only will the flavors be enhanced but research indicates that fresh ingredients have more health benefits than prepacked ingredients.
The third and last addition to get the most flavor out of your recipe is to find a good recipe. There are millions of recipes out there and not all are good recipes. It will take some research and probably some experimentation to find out and figure out which of these recipes are accurate and have the best mixing of flavors.
This might not be a guarantee for a recipe of flavor but I can say that this will help you gain ground on creating a dish that has more flavor than you last.
