A hot meal, an impressive dessert – it’s always a great feeling when your favorite recipe comes out just right. Whether you’re cooking for yourself or whipping up treats for your family and friends, you can make sure every dish is cooked to perfection, no matter your level of vision. All it takes is a few simple tricks. To get started, let’s take a look at that recipe.
Some recipes explain when a dish is done by describing how it looks – such as, “cook the meat until the juices run clear,” or “bake the cornbread until it’s golden brown.” Following these guidelines can be a challenge with lower vision. But here are some other methods you can use to check whether your snacks and meals are done.
First, let’s focus on the delicious smell of that dish you’re making. Foods tend to have different smells when they’re raw and when they’re cooked. And the “peak smell” describes the scent a food has when it’s done to perfection.
