Well every recipe can't match everyone's expectations but I understand your
point. However for many of their recipes they subject them to a group of tasters
to find what tastes correct. And they will even describe what each attempt of
a recipe results in. So if you like cheesecake kind of grainy where they are wanting
it smooth, then use the method that may have negatively been described as
grainy if you like it that way.
You do have to have some kind of benchmark when you perform an experiment.
