Eating foods at the "opportune" moment

So I’m being hopelessly Asian, but can I just say that I like my rice steaming hot, right from the cooker? For any of you readers out there who eat rice regularly, you’ll know what I’m talking about when I say rice tastes so much better when it’s fresh and just steamed. For any of you readers out there who don’t eat rice regularly, or maybe have cooked rice in a pan or used instant rice packets, this is what a rice steamer looks like:

This actually looks exactly like the one I have in my kitchen right now…
There is an in-between layer between the pot that holds the rice and the larger cooker itself- this is where you put the water that evaporates into steam to cook the rice

See? You learn something new everyday.

But anyways, rice isn’t the only food that tastes better steaming hot. Baked potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon, lasagna, pizza (debatable, cold pizza is pretty dang good too….), and most of all: chocolate chip cookies. It’s a totally different cookie when it’s fresh out of the oven, the chocolate chips are still half melted and gooey, the cookie not quite firm but it’s so soft and moist it tastes like heaven when you bite into it….
So there you have it. There’s probably tons more food that I missed that only taste their best at a certain state. Let me know in the comments below so I can add it to my own personal list of “foods to eat only at the opportune moment.”
