Food tastes better when you eat at a mirror

22 posts in this topic

 

Was just listening to a podcast where they were interviewing an author named Bob Holmes about his new book titled, Flavor . If you're into this subject then you may find this an interesting read.

Well this is the Japanese, so no surprises to this silly research.

And i must admit, I never heard of this phenomenon before....maybe its another Japanese thing.

I enjoy my husbands cooking, I know sitting in front of a mirror is going to make it taste better. But our food is not raw or mainly rice. :P

Eating in front of a mirror might make people lose weight.

I'm going to take the family to have dinner @ Opaque this Summer.  It's a restaurant where you order your meal in a dimly lit anteroom, then are escorted into the completely dark dining room where your meal is served in the dark.  Unique.  Should accent the flavors and the conversation I would imagine. 

Opaque... Dark Dining.

Another odd thing people do is they take pictures of their food and post it, never got that one. 9 times of 10 I don`t even know what there eating.

The only time I take pictures of food is when I make it and want to show a friend.

Actually studies have shown that different lighting, sounds, room temperature, descriptive words, and many other factors all influence the way food tastes.  See post #2, just listened to an interview with the author of the book and it was much more interesting than you may think.

I could easily see this helping some people to eat less too, as they see themselves in the mirror. Lol
