My wife is a super-taster and she doesn't have a big schnoz. She is especially sensitive to hot foods and bitter foods. That wonderful "charred flavor is bitter and so does not go on her plate. She can't even handle most ketchups as they are too hot for her. It makes cooking a chore as I have to make basically two meals every time I cook. I make the initial meal, and set aside her portion before I season it for the rest of the crew. She wasn't always like this either. She never could handle bitter or hot, but now, include oregano, basil, cilantro, garlic, and most other herbs and spices to the mix of things that have to be toned down for her. Me on the other hand, love strong and powerful flavors. Her pizza has no sauce, ham and cheese. Mine will have extra sauce, hot Italian Sausage, extra perpperoni, black olives, onions, green peppers, red peper flakes, and cheese.
Super tasters are at a serious disadvantage with most foods. It renders them unable to enjoy so much.
