“The sight of the little madeleine had recalled nothing to my mind before I tasted it.
And all from my cup of tea.” - Marcel Proust

How much does taste influence our memories?

Or is taste influenced from our past experiences?

A relationship between food and childhood memories. A large part of my family’s culture focuses on sharing food and sitting around the table. It is also an integral part of many cultures and families. This is perhaps why our sense of taste and smell has a nostalgic quality for so many of us.
