Always taste a cooked sample of you dish before cooking the rest of the meat. Many foods such as hamburgers, meatloaf and meatballs need careful and specific seasoning. After you add your seasoning, don’t cook the whole thing. Cook a small portion first to sample. Once you have tried your sample you can correct the seasoning or proceed with the cooking.

This removes the scent from your hands; it also prevents the odor from being transferred to other foods.
