Make Healthy Food Taste Better By Making It Smell Like Junk Food, Scientists Say

Things that make food taste good: fat, sugar, salt. Things that make your body work good: kale. This is (more or less) the premise that led French researchers to build a device that makes healthy food taste better by adding junk food smells to it. (Although, finish that braised kale with a hit of acid, like sherry wine vinegar, and I promise you that you will experience an immediate tastiness boost. *Not science, but basically.)

Random sensory quotes

At 86, I can easily look back to the last eight decades. Though memory often fails me now, so many images of the past are still clearly polished, and I can yet recall not just an abiding sense of place, but the keen smells, the sensory responses to the events of that past.
