almost always. i like things spicy so extra pepper is great and salt really enhances the taste of a lot of food - makes many things more edible if it isn't all that great to begin with.

I gotta taste it first. Otherwise, you could ruin it!

Never add salt but some fresh ground pepper is good on almost anything.

No. I like to taste my food before adding.

Yes! I salt and pepper everything. My husband tells me I over do it. I can't eat my food unless I see seasoning on top of it first.

Only eggs. Otherwise, I taste first, season second.

I cook with pepper and salt but I never really season it after it is cooked.

I usually pepper my food before tasting it, but NEVER salt it.

Usually no, but I love a little salt and pepper on my eggs. I also agree that it's kind of rude to dump salt and pepper all over your food without even tasting it first.

I don't use salt or pepper until I've tasted something. Most things are salty enough! I don't like it when the waitstaff in restaurants ask you if you want fresh ground pepper, when you haven't even tasted the food yet.

I've added pepper a few times in my life, but I've only added salt once. My aunt made some soup that turned out to have almost no flavor; she salted hers first and said it was better, so I tried it. It was better, but it didn't inspire me to start salting things. Meh. I just never got into the habit, so I guess I don't really see the point.

I always try the food first, but I looove pepper. I cook with it a lot. But the ultimate spice is of course Tony Cacheres. I will skip both salt and pepper if there is Tony's available.

Usually french fries are in need of a little salt.

I <3 pepper. Veggies get peppered, I NEVER salt, most food has enough darn sodium in it as it is. If it doesn't taste good, don't eat it.

I automatically salt things like eggs, or popcorn, but I usually try the food first to see if it even warrants any salt or peppering.

It depends. I'll usually taste everything first. Unless I'm at my mothers... she never seasons anything!
