Seasoning is the key to getting a dish right. That is why you season the flour before browning the meat on a pan, it is why you put salt in the water for potatoes. Seasoning adds flavour, makes the food less bland. However, when you season your food before you eat it - it is kind of rude, unless you have made the food yourself and you already know how it tastes. You also risk over seasoning your food and then you are stuck. I know when I add seasoning it is always pepper, I love pepper but salt I would never add extra as if you add to much you are left with that bitter salt taste to the food. There is a fine line between perfect and ruined, so next time you go to add a little extra salt and pepper to your meal taste it first!
