Season 12 Episode 2

Does Food Taste Better When It’s Cooked By Someone Else?

Research has shown that people prefer the taste of sandwiches made by other people than those they’ve made themselves. So in this episode we weigh in on the debate of whether or not food tastes better when someone else cooks it, from Barry’s fave egg mayo sandwich that only he can whip up to Ebbers’ mum’s unbeatable lasagne. We take a look at the reasons food sometimes just seems more delicious when you don’t make it, and we finish up by asking: does it actually taste any different, or is it just the experience of being cooked for? Let us know what you think in the comments below! Does food taste better when it’s cooked by someone else or do you prefer what you create yourself?

Ebbers served up a contrasting study by psychologist Charles Spence in which different groups of people ate curry. The groups who had been more involved in making their meal said they enjoyed it more. How much does the effort we put into our cooking make a difference to our enjoyment of it?
