Buy the best-quality foods you can afford. Not
only do better quality ingredients make better tasting food, but if your
supplies look good when you open the cupboards or refrigerator, you'll be more
inclined to use them and cook.
Sometimes food just tastes better when you
create the right atmosphere. Set the table with chopsticks and serve green tea
with dinner. If you can find some, end the meal with fortune cookies and have
everyone read theirs aloud.
