Funny how I like things.
A restaurant kitchen sent out my order one time and had the server ask if I thought it was overcooked. “They couldn’t decide whether to remake it or not. We can quickly get you another one, no problem.”
I said, “looks perfect! Yumm.”
Some dishes I don’t mind hard cooked even to the point of being burned.
In a cafeteria serving line, for example, I’ll sometimes ask for the charred corner of some dish.
