The Role of Sound in Food
September 9, 2022
Imagine this. It’s Christmas day, dinner is ready, you take your first bite into your roast potato and there’s no crunch. How disappointing!Recent research claims that the sound of our food influences the way it tastes. In fact, Charles Spence even won a Nobel Prize for his research into sound and food, which he also focuses on in his book, Gastrophysics: The New Science of Eating.In short, the sound of your food is more important than you think – from the snap of your crisps to the crunch of your roast potatoes. If you can enhance the sound of the foods you eat, you may even find them even more delicious.
