When you're learning how to cook, there are a number of things you try not to do, and burning your food is one of them. It's time to break the rules because sometimes food just tastes better when burnt.
We're not talking about leaving your chicken in the oven four hours too long (poultry doesn't do well if not cooked perfectly). But if you've burnt your rice, don't throw it out, take a bite. You'll be surprised how good it tastes. But you probably don't want to go overboard on a burnt diet; like most things that taste good, it might not be good for your health.
