I like to eat one thing at a time and also do not like my food touching one another on the plate!
I’ve had that pointed out to me more than once. My explanation is that when I am eating potatoes, I like to taste them.
When I eat meat, I want to taste meat.
I bet the following explanation about why we eat foods in a certain order will ring true to a lot of us here because we have heightened senses, perhaps the sense of taste as well….
Also eat things in a certain order because some things I have to eat hot, others can be cooler..
For example..dinner is steak, mashed potaoes and asparagus
I eat the asparagus first because I detest it even lukewarm, but love it hot!
The meat is next because to have it hot or warm is OK and the mashed are last because I can eat them at any old temperature.
Any one else do this because of this reason..temperature and taste?REPORT ABUSE
