Let’s be honest, food rarely tastes as good when you make it yourself at home as it does when it’s prepared in a restaurant by a professional chef. It’s one of the reasons that people go out to dinner. Of course, you can go to the market, buy all of the ingredients, prepare and cook the meal and then clean up. Or, you can go to a restaurant, order the same dish and have it made by a specialist who has made it hundreds, maybe thousands, of times.
