What a Great Segula!

On erev Shabbos it is a mitzvah to taste the dishes that are prepared for Shabbos (Magen Avraham 260:101).  We say in musaf shemona esrei of Shabbos, “Those who save it will merit long life.”  This refers to people who taste the Shabbos dishes on erev Shabbos; they will live to a ripe old age (Machzor Vitry 191).  He who tastes the Shabbos meals on erev Shabbos will merit a happy and virtuous life. ~ Shaar Harav as quoted by R’ Dovid Meisels
