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. Whether dining alone or at a dinner party, on a plane or in front of the TV, he reveals how to understand what we're tasting and influence what others experience. Mealtimes will genuinely never be the same again.

A foodie's must-read
I read Charles Spence's previous book, The Perfect Meal, so I had a rough idea of what to expect. Gastrophysics exceeded my expectations, it is engaging, funny and contains an awful lot of useful facts for anyone interested in food, food-related behaviour and preferences.

So good, I listened to it twice
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.
