what's the difference between the two please? I saw "tu peux y goûter?" which clearly took the preposition a but I would've said "tu peux le goûter?" Google hasn't helped me!
goûter à -- to taste a dish (for the first time)
goûter -- to try / sample before serving.
The two are very similar in meaning. although there's a slight difference:
goûter à qqc. -- to try something (in the sense of sampling the taste)gouter qqc. -- to taste something
Often times, they are used interchangeably. But one of the natives may have a better understanding.
