How much thought do you put into the fabric content of your clothes? What are your favorite fabrics? When you shop for clothes do you feel the fabric in your hands or against your skin? Just as I like to wear what feels good on my skin, I like to eat what fits my sensory ideals in food.
Think about how your mind travels along a menu when you go out to eat. Most of us have a conscious or unconscious method for narrowing down our choices. My mind files and remembers lemon, rosemary and thyme. I seek these flavors when I go out and I find ways to work them into what I am cooking and eating at home. Identify your sensory hot spots as these flavors, textures and characteristics are key to defining your satisfaction formula which helps you to define your food style. Can someone please pass me the lemon thyme chicken with the side of rosemary fingerling potatoes? Remember to save room for chocolate.
