How are chefs and companies planning to transform our dining experiences, and what can we learn from their cutting-edge insights to make memorable meals at home? These are just some of the ingredients of Gastrophysics, in which pioneering Oxford professor Charles Spence shows how our senses link up in the most extraordinary ways and reveals the importance of all the off-the-plate elements of a meal: the weight of cutlery, the placing on the plate, the background music and much more.

Fascinating food for thought. Anyone interrested in the influences and subconscious and subliminal attributes to an eating experience, this book is a must. It considers and discusses the multi sensory perceptions and reactions on the dining experience. A must for a curious mind.
