There are five recognized tastes: salt, sweet, bitter, umami, and sour.  Generally speaking, we are trained to season our cooking by adding salt.  Great chefs heed all of the five tastes, and they especially adjust the sour component.  This is where Minus 8 Vinegars and Verjus play a role.  Get into the habit of adjusting your cooking with Minus 8 Vinegars and Verjus - you will notice a delicious difference.
