Seriously, I have not eaten meat in 22 years, but I do remember what scrambled eggs with cheese, a McDonald's cheeseburger, and fried shrimp taste like. Outside of those items, I only know what things should taste like, through smell. Being a professional cook, I get a lot of flak for not tasting all the food I make (that's pretty much a rule in the kitchen : always taste what you make.)
I have been turned down for kitchen jobs, because I offended the head chef by not tasting the dish he had me make.
Judge away though, because I know it's super weird. And that's okay. My carnivore husband pokes fun of my flax crackers, cashew cheese, walnut taco meat all the time. But he is always surprised how delicious and simple my dishes are (especially my raw "cheesecake." OMG).
