The Unrivaled Practical Guide for Asian Cooking

How does temperature affect our taste on food?

The perceived intensity of salty, sweet, and bitter taste qualities is greatest in the 60o to 120oF temperature zone. Consequently, when seasoning a 180oF preparation that is to be served later at room temperature (72oF), such as potato salad, use less salt than your taste buds suggest during the hot test sampling. Do the reverse when you salt-test a room temperature food like a leftover soup that you plan to reheat.
