Perk Up Your Palate with Unique Food Recipes

By: Stephen John


People simply love food. The familiar taste of our favorite dishes gives us that satisfaction and enjoyment with every bite. The rich aroma of good food sends us running to the kitchen to check out what's cooking. From the simplest soup to the most complex and expensive culinary masterpiece, many types of food give us complete gastronomic satisfaction, and are intended to provide us health benefits.

It's not uncommon for typical families or circle of friends to love the usual sandwiches, sausages, potato salads, roasts, muffins, macaroni cheese, fish, steaks, cottage pies, barbecues and even fast food. Can you imagine making ordinary days special with unique, mouth-watering gourmet?

Surprise your family, friends, guests and yourself even more with distinct recipes that give your dish a delicious twist. Plan ahead by looking at your calendar and picking a special day. Is it your significant other's birthday? Is there a gathering to best present your masterpiece? You will need more time to prepare, particularly so if it is your first time to brave the unknown realms of cooking. You can also enjoy mastering the art of plating while at it.

Decide on the best unique dish. You can start by considering what your family or guests will like. You sure don't want to serve an Asian duck recipe to a bunch of vegetarians. You can also think about the event. There is certainly a huge difference between cooking for a party of a hundred people and a family lunch. Remember that cost matters. You can't be preparing a unique pasta and skip the most important ingredient because it is too expensive. Also, you might want to ask if that dish is healthy for your little boy.

Check out food magazines, ask your kitchen connoisseur of a friend, or search online for great unique recipes. Do your research to discover a wealth of options that will surprise you and get you more curious and excited about cooking and food preparation. You can go places with every bite, as they say. Let people "travel" with your unique Asian or Latin recipe. Many dishes are cooked in different ways, too, as shown in cooking videos. You may want to find out which method best suits you.

You may want to experiment with your surprise dish prior to actually cooking and serving it. If it's an unusual recipe that you're really eager to cook and perfect, do some food tasting. There's no shame in asking around for help too. Surprising your wife on your anniversary? Ask your kids to help you out with perfecting the recipe their mom will surely love.

If there need be, look for healthier substitutes. It's always great to go healthy, without compromising taste and fun. Tofu may not be your meat-eating family's favorite, but with a dab of the most unique spices and herbs, they will never even be able to tell the difference. Drink concoctions are great too, but you may want to go easy on the alcohol. Cooking healthy is not always a bore if you know how to do magic in the kitchen.
