    Is there a spice or seasoning that in your opinion ruins an otherwise great dish?

    Nope! They all have their place.

    Not a fan of curry though.

    Any spice or seasoning can ruin if you use too much.

    For me onion powder just lends any dish the flavor of mass made cafeteria food. 😕

    I like the spicy heat from curry, but the cinnamon , clove and allspice flavors are best left for cookies or something like that.

    certain combinations can upset the taste of a meal but hey one does have to experiment (variety, the spice of life).

    They say Cajun cuisine's Holy Trinity is celery, bell peppers and onions. IMO the seasoning Holy Trinity is salt, pepper and garlic powder. 😕

    I use onion powder all the time....Saves peeling the onions & a lot of tears. 😉

    I never think to run the onion under cold water...LOL...

    I was never fond of ginger either. Then this Asian friend cooked up some great dishes that had a strong ginger flavor, they were also very spicy and hot. I changed my mind then. 🙂

    Savory's great with turkey and chicken. So bold and peppery that I doubt it would enhance beef and pretty sure it would overpower delicate seafoods.

    Odd thing to me is, I like onions, and I like garlic powder (fresh minced is much better though)

    I hate it when the experts say, don't use too much salt. It's bad for you.
    There is enough salt in everything already.

    If that is the case, then why can't I taste it if it is there already?

    I f*****g love salt!

    Have to cut down.
