●講演要旨
Gastrophysics: The New Science of Eating

Charles Spence
Crossmodal Research Laboratory, Department of Experimental Psychology,
University of Oxford

“Once at least in the life of every human, whether he be brute or
trembling daffodil, comes a moment of complete gastronomic satisfaction.
It is, I am sure, as much a matter of spirit as of body. Everything is
right; nothing jars. There is a kind of harmony, with every sensation
and emotion melted into one chord of well-being.” (Fisher 2005, p. 325).

What is the perfect meal? We can probably all think of at least one
especially memorable dinner that we have had. For some, it might be
something as simple as a picnic in a summer meadow or else fish and
chips by the seaside (while listening, of course, to the sounds of the
sea). For others, the gastro-tourists, it will be that once in a
lifetime trip to one of the world’s top Michelin-starred restaurants.
Wherever it was, though, what made it so special wasn’t just the food
(Spence & Piqueras-Fiszman, 2014). Of course, the food matters: It is,
after all, one of the most multisensory of our experiences (Spence,
2015), one where if even a single sensory element is wrong, something is
served cold that was supposed to be hot, then the whole experience will
be ruined. In this talk, though, I want to argue that what makes for a
great eating experience depends far more on ‘the everything else’ that
surrounds the meal than we realize: It depends on everything from the
mood we are in through to the company we keep, and from the environment
in which we choose to eat and drink through to the plating, plateware,
and cutlery. I will review the emerging body of research from the new
field of gastrophysics that is helping to isolate just how important
these various product-extrinsic factors are to our perception and
enjoyment of food (Spence, 2017). Some of the most exciting recent
examples of the dynamic interplay between chefs, designers, and sensory
scientists that is giving rise to exciting new immersive, experiential,
(possibly experimental), and most definitely multisensory, dining
experiences will also be highlighted. Finally, I will show how the
search for the perfect meal can lead to interventions that may
potentially help (in some small way) to tackle the growing obesity
crisis, not to mention providing some intriguing ideas about how to get
us all to shift to a rather more sustainable (possibly insect-based)
diet in the decades ahead.
