Taste is one of our most evocative senses – certain flavours can transport you to far distant times and places in an instant. But it’s also a very individual sense, with some people loving what others hate. Julia Wheeler is joined by author Niki Segnit (Lateral Cooking), who explores the complexity of the human palette with The Kitchen Cabinet’s sensory expert Barry Smith and psychologist Charles Spence.
