The Secret of Gourmet Cuisine

This lovely little tin once contained 'Gourmet Powder'. I bought it in the hope that finally, the secret of gourmet cooking would be mine. It promises to make my favourite dishes 'surprisingly delicious'. Which is funny, because people often are surprised when my cooking turns out to be delicious... 
But surely the recipe for such an amazing ingredient must be a secret? Well, no, the ingredients list is short but precise.  'Monosodium Glutamate  - More than 92%. Salt - Less than 8%.'  (I suppose the clue was in the fact that the manufacturer is Ve Tsin Chemical Industries Ltd.)

So, next time you're eating the local takeaway's House Special Chow Mein straight from the plastic container, you will be secure in the knowledge that you are a true gourmet!
