"It is time for lunch. I am looking at the menu trying to figure out what I am going to have today. Suddenly, I realise that there is a relaxing sound of the sea playing in the background. It takes me straight to a tropical beach. I decide that I am going for something healthy today: Let's check the fish."

Experiments like these are already being developed. Scientists are creating different environments where all of our senses can play a key role in the way we buy and eat our food. Nowadays, the challenge is to put the scientific input into real-life scenes.

Felipe Reinoso Carvalho develops such experiments, for the fourth time he uses the mim as a laboratory.
