The best delicacies combine two essential (um) ingredients: tastiness + trajectory.
In other words, overall deliciousness makes up just half the rating system when you’re an expert food critic with feathers.
The other half of your rating system is flingability (a technical term).
Flingability refers to how far your beak buildup flies when you shake your cute feathery cockatiel head after a satisfying meal.
If the bits previously piled up high on your beak populate the kitchen countertop, this warrants at least a 3-feather rating.
If the bits populate your next door neighbor’s front lawn, a 5-feather rating is definitely in order for both your personal Small Chef and her freshly unveiled new lasagna recipe.
