Can't I write "Die Vorspeise schmeckt"? Do I have to add "gut"?
If you want an emphatic yummy!, then you need to add gut / lecker, else it sounds a bit dispassionate / neutral.
und diese Vorspeise ist SO gut!...
Danke schön :)
In a previous sentence, "Die Tomate und der Salat schmecken" was accepted, though.
My Wirtin used to ask me "Schmeckt es?" when serving dinner.
why in schmeckt gut not acceptable? it has appeared several times in your sentences as an alternative to lecker
