What flavor is spicy taste?
It seems to me that the savory taste is a combination of hot sauce, soy sauce and sweet and sour. That is, it is tasty at the same time spicy and sour, and very unusual in taste. I think this spicy sauce will go well with meat. Spicy taste is something unusual and not like anything else.
In my opinion, this is something tangy, spicy.
For me personally, the concept of piquant taste includes the concepts of spicy and spicy. But this is far from being all perception. In a broader sense, I understand piquant taste as unusual, playful, perky, appetite-stimulating taste. Perhaps arousing special attention and curiosity to the dish.
In my opinion, this is a complex compound taste with bittersweet-sour notes with some kind of unusualness. For example, cumin seeds add piquancy to pilaf, the taste of cinnamon to coffee, that is, it is still a matter of combination, that is, one cannot say that an orange, for example, has a piquant taste, add a little cinnamon to the cut slices - a completely different matter.
According to my feelings, the piquant taste is present in those dishes where "incompatible" products and tastes are combined. For example, the taste of a salad in which cottage cheese, apples and walnuts are present, I will call it spicy. Once I tried a combination of apples, onions, fillets of herring and vinegar, this also has a piquancy for me 🙂
If the dish contains a mixture of seafood and "ground" meat, then it will also be piquant.
It is a taste that attracts with its originality and uniqueness, spicy, tart and pungent. It also has a pronounced taste. Sauces, salads, cheese, etc. are savory. Chilean cuisine is considered to be such because of the pungency of the dishes.
