Questions about the use of spices, herbs, salt and other flavorings to create the desired flavor in the final dish. See also [tag:salt]. For questions about seasoning cookware (e.g. cast iron) please use [tag:seasoning-pans].

There is no universal definition of "seasoning", the word means different things to different people. The answers to "Is there a difference between seasoning and flavouring?" are divided, but the combined answers do give the reader a basis for communication, and this tag is intended to broadly cover the ways people use the term, rather than trying to mandate a particular definition.
