Your top 10 favorite flavors...

Recommended Posts

I don't mean to be nitpicky but could someone enlighten me on the definition of a flavor? At least half of the items on the lists submitted are what I call foods or dishes---in other words, simply favorite things to eat. Clearly not flavors: sushi, toast with butter, soups, bread pudding, shellfish, cream puffs, pulled pork, cheese,

 

These are things I consider flavors: blueberry, vanilla, candied ginger, corn, coffee, lychee, chocolate, maple, pineapple. cantaloupe, etc. Tomato in general may be a flavor, or maybe not. Different tomatoes have different flavors, at least to me. Plum is similar. Santa Rosa plum is a distinct flavor, plum is more of a general flavor. It's complicated, no?

As mentioned, seems to be a lot of cross over between flavours and food - I will attempt a list of flavours:

 

- Truffles (white or black, I am not picky!)

- Mangoes

- Raspberry

- Caramelized Onion

- Roasted Garlic

- Lobster

- Crab

- Roasted Almond

- Figs

- Wok-hay-Veggies
