The Olfactic Dog Nose

Charlie Harry Francis - The Olfactic Dog Nose Forget adding salt and pepper to your meal, the Olfactic Dog Nose will improve the flavour of your food like no condiment could. Created by award winning Edible Inventor - and Lick Me I'm Delicious founder - Charlie Harry Francis, the Olfactic Dog Nose is soaked in warm water and worn for 10 minutes prior to eating, moistening your nasal cavity and vastly improving your sense of smell and flavour. Charlie says: "It basically gives you a very gentle nasal douche. A wet nose is a healthy nose on a dog, similarly a wet nasal passage is a tasty nasal passage for a human. A huge part of flavour comes from our olfactic senses, our sense of smell - without this, a strawberry just tastes sweet, it doesn't taste of strawberry (do the test by eating a strawberry while pinching your nose, then release your nose, initially you'll taste strawberry, when you release your nose, it will be like you've been hit by a truck load of strawberries). In the same way as our eyes don't work well in the dark, our nose doesn't work well if it's dry (something which is more likely to happen in winter). This latest invention is part of the wider Human Cookbook movement Charlie is championing, looking at the effect your mental and physical state has on flavour. If you're tired, if you haven't exercised recently, if you've been gorging on sugar or eating a diet high in salts, if you're dehydrated, if you're stressed, if you had a massive lunch, if you eat really quickly - all these things will have a huge effect on how much you enjoy your meal. The Lick Me I'm delicious team offer the example of celeb contestants from 'I'm a Celebrity'. They say:"Here are a load of people who are used to eating in fantastic restaurants (well some of them), yet put them in a jungle for a few weeks and they're suckers for a cheap slice of pizza. As well as living in a society bombarded with visual and audio overload, we also exist in a time of flavour overload - stepping down f - - Wednesday 22nd October 2014 (1 Picture)
