This 잠언 means “What looks good tastes good”.
Literal Translation / Meaning: Good looking rice cake tastes good too.
Use (사용시기) This 잠언 can be used when you know that end product/result would be good. As when an experienced Chef puts effort in Taste, he would put effort in its appearance as well. As seeing food is one of the Delights as well, which helps Chef to take the Dish to next level.
Which kind of rotates in this one, as when you see a thing with Good Appearance you can guess the amount of work that is been put into it. And with that much effort on just appearance, Chef wouldn’t serve to Salty dishes, right? 😉
