What is Cornstach and what does it do.. Also what is it used for. And lastly what does it taste like... I mean what flavor does it add to the food you put it into. :chef:

Off the top of head, it helps thickens sauces/gravies.
What does it taste like? I don't know what else to say, but it taste like corn starch?

I don't think corn starch has a flavor but it's main purpose is as a thickening agent and sometimes as part of a dry batter for frying items.

Yes to all of the above. It is also used in addition to, or in place of, flour in baked goods. No flavor--just a very chalky texture.

Blanc Mange, roughly speaking, is a cornstarch pudding, and is cheap to make
