Here is a fun exercise to try. Go around some people and ask whether you have taste buds on the roof of your mouth.
The amount of people who answer “no” to this question, I find astonishing. Not because this means they weren’t paying attention in science class, but it means that every single day, 3 times a day (or more) they ate food in their sleep.
Have you ever stopped to savour the food you were eating?
Have you ever noticed how amazing dark chocolate tastes towards the back of the roof of your mouth?
Have you ever wondered where you experience all those juicy flavors in pure food?
You don’t need a diagram. Just take a bite and savour it. Notice the textures, the flavors, and where you experience them.
It’s a pretty magical experience.
