How is Your Pepper Palette?

One of my favorite food blog reads is Harold McGee's Curious Cooks site that has a collection of his articles from the New York Times. He weaves some technical background into his articles on a variety of food and cooking topics. His recent article about pepper notes in wine was interesting -- especially the fact that a significant portion of the population lacks the ability to detect some flavors. That creates an interesting challenge for cooks trying to season a dish for the average person.
