what the fuck is taste?

like sometimes you can put your brain at a bit of a remove and realise ok this taste is just a form of very localised touch, but is that all it is?

if you had a really really tiny hand could you tickle somebody’s tongue in such a way that they tasted strawberry?

Think there’s more than that. I’m no expert and not looking this up so happy to be corrected but I think part of what we think of as taste is actually smell - you can really only taste sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami, and the rest of how we distinguish taste is the nose’s contribution, which is why you lose your taste when you have a cold.

Maybe the real taste is the friends we made along the way.

People talk about tastemakers, I call them farmers

Chefs are just tastearrangers
