In the food and restaurant business the thing that matters most is the taste of served dishes. It’s not a secret that taste refers not only to gustatory sensations, but is actually a combination of taste, smell, sight and even touch.

Probably, you’re aware of the classical experiment, in which French wine experts were asked to describe the taste of a white wine colored red (with no change in odor or taste). The connoisseurs described the wine in terms typically used for describing red wine, rather then white ones. What they saw changed the way it tasted even for trained tasters. What can we say about the people who just want to relax having a good meal? One more fact is, that taste perception is often programmed by seeing a dish in advance. Great presentation programs great experience, mess on the plate tastes yucky even if it doesn’t.

In the restaurant business it is wise to make use of this taste programming as much as possible. Great sight of dishes is important to tempt people into dropping by and tasting. That is why it’s so important how your place looks like online as well. What is the style of your online parlors, what is the atmosphere around there? Is it all modern, well-functioning and suggesting great experience? Online visit is the interlude to the real-time tasting and should be perfect if you aim at multiplying your audience.
