Food and the 5 senses

Like doing a puzzle, our five senses simultaneously collect a whole range of information about food: its colour, shape, taste, smell, temperature and texture, so that we can picture it in detail.

Sight, hearing and touch

Smell and taste

What do we do with odours, tastes and aromas?
