Ingredient Balance

Most of great cooking is understanding the harmony and balance of ingredients. Baking in most forms is a mastery of the ratios between this and that. So, truly, is any culinary construction. Overload one ingredient and it dominates, mostly overwhelms, your preparation. Too much of one ingredient to another changes the flavor composition. Maintain balance, and you achieve a greater flavor in your culinary creations.
