Even though there is a fair amount of figuring involved, I still think that cooking is more art than science! Anyone can follow a recipe plus make a dish, but it takes true creativity to invent your own recipes plus create bold, flavorful new dishes. Thanks to a little bit of spare income, I have been fortunate enough to pursue my passion for cooking over the last few years. It has been quite a journey, plus I have discovered a few things along the way that help me greatly.
Personally, I believe that bad smells can take a good meal plus make it taste like rubbish, because the air quality can destroy your taste buds before you take a bite! For this reason I make sure to have a terrific ventilation system in my kitchen, to help keep the air clean plus clear. In addition to the range hood over the stove I also have a box fan plus a portable air filter in the dining room. When they all work together, this helps to circulate the air plus provide correct ventilation so the bad odors do not pile up. Without the right ventilation system in use, my patrons will get a nose full of scorched oil before they get a mouth full of food, plus it will affect the taste.
I am not saying you need to invest major money into an advanced Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system just for your cooking; that would be absurd! But without a good ventilation system, or at least a enjoyable air filter, your food may be terrible.
