Description - The Perfect Meal - the Multisensory Science of Food and Dining by Charles Spence

The authors of The Perfect Meal examine all of the
elements that contribute to the diner's experience of a meal
(primarily at a restaurant) and investigate how each of the
diner's senses contributes to their overall multisensory
experience. The principal focus of the book is not on flavor
perception, but on all of the non-food and beverage factors that
have been shown to influence the diner's overall
experience.
Examples are:

the colour of the plate (visual)

the shape of the glass (visual/tactile)

the names used to describe the dishes (cognitive)

the background music playing inside the restaurant (aural)

Novel approaches to understanding the diner's experience
in the restaurant setting are explored from the perspectives of
decision neuroscience, marketing, design, and psychology.

2015 Popular Science Prose Award Winner.
