Dissecting Taste – Sweet, Sour, Bitter, Salty: We will present ingredients and have the children taste and describe what they are tasting. For example, Sweet: Honey, Sour: limes, Bitter: unsweetened cocoa powder or radicchio, Salty: Pickles, Olives. Once we recognize different taste, we can understand how to balance flavors.
