The way a meal is served can influence its taste a new Oxford study shows. Using heavy crockery and cutlery can make food taste more appealing.

Oxford University psychologist Professor Charles Spence, who carried out the experiments also found that colour of the plate on which the food is served can also influence its taste.

Volunteers who ate a strawberry dessert from a white plate thought it tasted 10% sweeter than those who ate the same pudding from a black one.
