I guess we could use this in a lot of other domains. I noted that beer
(something I normally do not care much for) tastes amazing after a long,
hot walk. Same thing for salty food, of course.
As a neuroscientist I would of course go for whatever
hypothalamus/brainstem receptors detect the iron, salt, whatever
deficiency and add something that messes with them in the amuse-bouche.
By the time the main course comes along, we will be craving it (and not
just because the kitchen is slow).
