A test and tried dish of garlic, herb and dip from Domino’s to prepare that famous condiment at your own home.
In the realm of food, the words “good” and “delicious” aren’t always synonymous. Being a journalist that writes on food topics, I’m often required to hold high expectations, along with an attraction to luxurious. “I doubt this is up to your standards”, is a phrase I’m used to hearing as I sit in a restaurant to enjoy an exquisite meal prepared by family or friends members. Even when the food is almost unpalatable, it’s not really the issue. Even if something can’t be classified as “restaurant quality”, it does not mean it’s any less tasty. In diverse cultures, the most delicious food isn’t served in restaurants. It’s in markets, homes and shops, as well as petrol stations or locations of worship. In unimaginable places to find the best bite’. Yes, I love to eat healthy however, we all have addictions and my list of them is endless.
Food and food writing can be subjective, especially when it comes to writing about restaurants but the key to success lies in the ability to discern between your own personal tastes and what’s actually good or not. Food that is fast, for example is loved by many people, however only a few would define it as good food. What is the real issue whether it’s good or not? The exact definition is not clear which, by itself, poses a problem. Similar principles is applicable to food items that are technically good. It’s possible to have something technically flawless, but not necessarily satisfying.
In addition to the science behind the taste buds the real pleasure evoked through certain foods is dependent on nostalgia. Because that no two people experience exactly the same experience and the outcomes are subject to interpretation and are usually contentious. The degree of enjoyment (or otherwise) mixed that is the most subjective element of eating.
When I was a kid, takeaway pizza was regarded as a treat, mostly reserved for special occasions. A lot of pizza lovers might argue that food served that comes from Pizza Hut or Domino’s, for instance, could never be considered good enough However, to many it’s certainly “interesting”.
Britain’s largest pizza delivery company, Domino’s Pizza plans to launch 200 brand new UK outlets in the next year and reported an underlying profit before tax of PS101.2million last year, registering sales of PS1.35billion increasing by 10.3 percent in a comparable basis. It’s not surprising that the first week of the initial national lockdown was the most successful of last year’s delivery orders with Domino’s serving two million pizzas. Bars, restaurants and clubs shut the night of New Year’s Eve Domino’s delivered 14 pizzas per second.
No matter what toppings you prefer the majority of Domino’s customers are united in a common admiration for the brand’s Garlic and Herb Dip, that has achieved the status of a cult. Domino’s’s popular vegan selection includes an plant-based sauce made with garlic and herbs that is made from pea protein. With no preservatives, which allow the dip to remain for months, homemade garlic-herb dip from Domino’s is easy to replicate at home, provided that the proper ingredient ratios are utilized.

After testing numerous variations of the recipes for the Domino’s herb and garlic dip, a mixture of mayonnaise with sour cream will yield a result that is similar to the original. It also includes dried parsley in place of fresh lemon juice sugar, salt as well as a dash of white wine vinegar and the suggestion that mustard powder (the dip’s secret weapon). Mix all the ingredients together and serve as dips for almost anything. The recipe makes about 250ml. It can be kept in the refrigerator for several days, provided it lasts for that long.
