Word on the street is that vision plays a large role in how we all perceive food. Since I first heard about Zee’s blind-tasting challenge, I have been curious to try it out.

Friday in Dubai is a weekend day or as I would like to call it, “Lazy Day”. I usually spend it at home on the couch watching TV or I hit the pool and lay down under the sun reading gossip magazines.

We decided that our menu would have a salad with cheese and a pasta with tomato sauce.

I went to my parents’ house with the kids and realized they were both going to be working for the next several hours.

Friday was the chosen day for me to do the blind taste test suggested by TB’s last challenge. I partnered up with my sister to test each other. When her kids heard about it, they got all excited and wanted to team up with their mom and me and play “the game”.
Anthony, the oldest, wanted to be on his mom’s team. Being a competitive boy he was all concerned by who wins and how?
Marc wanted to be on my team since he is my “sous-chef”.
