Questions on understanding and manipulating the flavor of foods.

This tag should used for questions that are about fundamental flavor concepts, such as how to enhance, mask, or eliminate a particular flavor.

Most questions about food or cooking are, to some degree, about flavor. This tag should only be added to questions that are about flavor or taste in an specific context, especially ones related to basic tastes and well-known aromas.

Avoid the use of this tag as a synonym for varieties ("flavors of X"), or as a catch-all tag for vague questions ("How can I improve the flavor?"). Such questions are usually closed as Not Constructive.

Questions about spices do not need this tag; the tag is preferred.
