Describing Food – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

At the outset, may all the food prepared by you with love be extremely good and highly appreciated.
My previous article was on Indian Cuisines. I wrote of how I got opportunities to taste a large variety of food all over our country and at few places abroad, and that I love to do so. Here I would like to mention that I encourage and participate in creating such variety of food at our house…regular followers of my blog are aware of this fact. My philosophy is that any food from any region, well prepared and appreciated by others should be tasted and I have always liked any such food, however bizarre (except that which is prohibited by my religion). And we always try to create some of these specialties at home for fun and taste.
Recipes can go bad, even regularly cooked food may sometimes look or taste bad due to various reasons like a little negligence by us or bad ingredients. But according to me a very high percentage of preparations rarely go bad. The good food is always very openly appreciated and some recipes that go bad are secretly criticized. Surprisingly the terms used for describing food, the good, the bad and the ugly are very large and here are some of those words to refresh your memory and amuse you:
