Overview

Join famed sensory epicure Diane Ackerman in discovering the variety of cuisine available around the world. Nova Video Library: Mystery of the Sense - Taste begins its journey with a delectable feast of lobster in a restaurant in France. Next up is an elaborate meal served in Mexico called the day of the dead and finally a quick stop at a street food stand in downtown Manhattan. We learn about the four main tastes -- sweet, sour, salty and bitter -- and how we have developed and maintained them as an inherited trait for hundreds thousands of years. ~ Laura Mahnken
