Think this post is about food? It isn’t.

The sharp taste of feta is great, but it overwhelms the subtler tastes. Just because you like feta crumbles on your salad doesn’t mean it should be rumbling in vats across your dinner plate.

Don’t try to dominate. You’ll just spoil the dish and waste some expensive ingredients.
