What if the size of our dinner plate, its color, the material of our cutlery – even background sounds – all affect how our food tastes? In other words, what if it’s not just about what we cooked for dinner, but the context of the meal itself?
Presenter Quentin Cooper meets some of the growing band of scientists who say that the food we eat is just a small part of our tasting experience.
This story was originally produced by Hannah Marshall and presented by Quentin Cooper in 2015. It was hosted and mixed for Transistor by Josh Swartz. Outro music by Jahzzar.
