Eating is one of the most enjoyable daily experiences people share. The satisfaction of satiating hunger, the nourishment derived from food, the aromatic stimulation of taste buds, the visual appeal of colorful edibles, and also, the cultural aspects of eating including how it is shared, its preparation and how different flavors are combined, make up the culinary world, which many consider an art.
