(But have had people tell me that too...and no...they haven't noticed the difference...I've actually double tricked them and put the milk in first just the way they liked it and said 'Bet you can't tell the difference' - 'yes I can, this one tastes bitter'..but the jokes on them because I didn't trick them at all ...funny as! But that's cool that you think you'd know the difference...I bet you couldn't if I tested ya, I'm a good actress when I wanna be )
Wow, after reading this thread I'm grateful that my DH doesn't seem quite as fussy as I thought after all. My sympathies to those cooking separate and/or boring meals
I can taste the difference if milk is put in my tea before the bag has had a chance to brew properly, and certain brands of chocolate stand out for me, but that's about as far as my powers of detection go! My palate is definitely nothing special
I do think some people (a tiny percentage) can pick out the content of a dish and the quality of the ingredients, but these are people with super-tastebuds and not us ordinary folk!
DD has pretty good tastebuds... she picked out a tiny amount of parsley (knew it was parsley too!) in her salad dressing the other day. lol.
She does it all the time. But then, the little dork probably developed a taste for them early when she ate all my herb plants (she'd just go hide in the garden and eat them straight off the plant... lol).
