Green beans taste white.

mushrooms should be browner
except for the already brown ones, they’re doing great


I don’t know what colour radishes taste like but it’s not radish coloured

reckon cheese should be a bit browner too really, it’s not far off but it’s got a bit of the old brownness

Some herbs like rosemary and thyme taste a bit purple.


here’s my taste guide:

brown - earthy, savoury
red - sweet but tangy
green - sharp and fresh
yellow - sharpest
blue - sweet and fruity
black - bitter but smooth
white - weak and watery
orange - orange
purple - cloying and sickly
