A report today on the BBC news website lists food experiments that can alter out perception of how the food tastes. The shape of the plate, the colour of the crockery, music and even smells wafted into the air around us can alter our perception of the food we eat.
From the BBC:
What can you taste when you swirl a mouthful of malt whisky around your mouth? Peaty flavours, honey, sea salt? Talk to any whisky drinker and they’ll be happy to discuss at length.
But it turns out that not all you are getting is down to your taste buds – or even your nose.
