Personne ne goûtait could also mean that people were sitting around awkwardly trying really hard to avoid tasting the dishes. So it's an ongoing action in the past. However, I don't understand why faisait and not a fait. Surely they could not have the opportunity to try them had they not already been made (finished action).
It's a different negation couplet. Ne...pas is one. So is ne...personne, ne...jamais, etc.
In this sentence it is ne...personne. Only because personne is the subject of the sentence, the order is different. Personne comes first because it is the subject in a declarative statement, then ne (because it goes in front if the verb) and then the verb.
So a standard sentence would be: Paul ne voyait personne.
The sentence for this exercise is: Personne ne goûtait.
