I use far less salt than any of the tv chefs do. My mom has high blood pressure and needs to get away from all the processed foods, so my food doesn't have as strong a taste as I'd like. I use a lot of herbs and spices to help, though.
I'd never heard this if you don't overcook idea - have an explanation you care to share?
I don't overcook in general anyway, but am curious since he always goes into the science behind things.
