Your food has to taste good, look good and with a sensational aroma. But most importantly let the taste in your food correlate. Imagine if you had to eat fried rice with too much vegetables, the real taste of fried rice would be lost in the vegetables. Food has evolved over the years doesn't mean they don't got history you got to stick to. Every cuisine has a history of taste and ingredients if you lost the proportion please create a fantastic recipe and name it. I get lost watching people cook delicious delicacies and just because they want it to look good defeat the taste. Every food has the way it's served and if you wanna play? Play around the compound of spice you put in.
