Steak Quality: The Development of Flavor
Hedgeapple Blog by Scott Barao
The single most frequent comment I hear from our customers about our Hedgeapple Farm beef is, "This is what I remember beef used to taste like." As I reflect upon this comment, I thought it might be beneficial to spend a few minutes considering the role of “taste” or "flavor" in your steak-eating experience.
If you search the word "flavor" on the internet, you will find some of the following definitions: "The distinctive taste of a food or drink" or, "The sensory impression of food or other substance, determined primarily by the chemical senses of taste and smell" and, my personal favorite, "An indication of the essential charactor of something."
