After all, there are Facebook groups where people rate other people’s dishes, and here are 96 of the most iconic dishes (new pics)
Whatever your personal favorite or least favorite food, there’s no denying that cooking can be an immense pleasure. You’ll have to get all your groceries, do the prep work, wash and finish a ton of dishes, but few things feel better than eating a meal you’ve cooked yourself. If you’re enjoying it too, mission accomplished!
However, frankly, you can’t always tell if a dish was well done. Sometimes you need a little objectivity. One of the places where you can ask for your candid and candid opinion is “Rate my plate” Facebook groupWith 41,000 members, the group asks people to share pictures of their food and let others rate it. A good dish might get a metaphorical gold star…or it might be called an idiot sandwich.
We have collected some of the best and weirdest dishes to show you dear pandas. We await your verdict. Would you like to eat? Would you avoid a 10-foot pole if you had one? Scroll down, upvote your favorite pics, and share your candid opinion in the comments.
bored panda reached out to the “Rate My Plate” team. We will update the article as soon as we hear from you.
The “Rate My Plate” Facebook group celebrated its second birthday a few months ago. This public group was established in his mid-August 2020 and welcomes members from all over the world, as long as they commit to following the rules.
One of the main rules everyone should follow is to put their ego aside. “This group is all about commenting on people’s food, so you don’t get offended if someone says something bad about your food,” explains the team that runs the show. They add that anyone who “turns out to be Snowflake” will eventually be suspended.
At the same time, group members are encouraged to be kind to each other. Criticism should not go beyond bullying or degrading comments.
There is no problem if you keep it related to food. On the other hand, posting anything unrelated to gastronomy can get you suspended for a few days.To be fair, the rules are pretty easy to follow. All you have to do is be a decent human being and talk about food photography. At the time of this writing, the Facebook group was run by his team of 3 admins and his 1 moderator.
Cooking, much like any other skill, relies on your ability to focus and learn from your mistakes. Sure, some people may be “born” and quickly learn to cook complex dishes, but the rest are stuck watching sad scrambled eggs. have the ability to improve.
How much improvement you see depends on how much time you spend in the kitchen and how willing you are to apply the lessons you learn when you make mistakes. Absolutely wonderful. Letting them taste your culinary concoction is even better.
Broadly speaking, a dish consists of two (arguably, unequal) parts. On the one hand, you have taste. It is the essence of cooking and absolutely any dish will succeed.
Even if everything looks delicious, if the person who eats it is disappointed, the effort will be worthless. Personally, I’ve tasted so many meals that look sumptuous but are bland/oversalted/overwhelmingly garlicky.
On the other hand you have everything related to aesthetics and presentationThis is actually a document for the “Rate My Plate” Facebook group. We have no sense of smell or taste, so we can only make judgments based on sight.
Here’s where things get tricky. I think you’ll agree that many of us have seen dishes that look terrible but actually taste great. I have also tasted small and beautiful dishes.
In fact, it’s very difficult to judge a meal just by looking at it.For example, Bored Panda Earlier I looked up various weird vintage recipesIt may sound very strange to us in the 21st century, but some flavor combinations actually work quite well.
For example, McGill University professor Natalie Cook explained in a previous interview that vintage party food recipes from the 1950s were the result of food fashion, not just a passing fad.
“I mean, basic flavor combinations are things that have been passed down for decades. and sweet (tuna waffle, ham, banana) or sweet and sour (lime and mayonnaise) flavor combinations are certainly very familiar,” she explained. us ahead.
“In the middle of the 20th century, there was a ‘fashion’. Consider, for example, a cooking booklet that shows you how to garnish ham with slices of canned pineapple and top it with a dazzling red of Maraschino his cherries. And I’m not even mentioning the amazing recipe that incorporates marshmallows into the main course dish, the brainchild of corporate marketing departments,” the professor said.
“But if I were to create one of my favorites today, say Pad Thai, from scratch, I would start with the same basic flavor combinations you describe that seem like odd plate partners at first glance.” she previously told Bored Panda.
“Cooking bitter tamarind with water, raw sugar, and fish sauce gives it a basic base (sour, salty, sweet). and sweetness) to deepen the flavor.”
In other words, the most important thing is to taste the food. And I would love to try most of the foods on this list.
