Discussing the sense of smell and its role in food and dining. What smells take you back to your childhood? What is your favourite culinary aroma and what feelings, sensations and memories does it inspire in you? Your sense of smell makes up to 95% of your eating experience and the number of unique smells you can register is infinite. Some restaurants purposefully pump out smells outside their premises to entice customers in.
