Bizarre report claims serviette color affects the taste of your meal
    2017-July-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Sometimes picking the right music or lighting for a dinner date can be daunting, but research suggests you should be focusing on the color of your napkins too.

A new report examining the relationship between colored napkins and the flavor of food found that color is a powerful contributor.

The report reveals which colors pair best with which dishes to help give your dinners that extra bit of flavor.

Napkin brand Tork partnered with Swedish food stylist and chef Linda Lundgren, who paired dishes with a range of colored napkins.

She told trade magazine The Caterer, “How do you make a strawberry mousse sweeter and richer-tasting? The answer isn’t more strawberries and sugar.

“Instead, try serving the dish with a coral pink napkin.

“The color actually increases the perception of sweetness and decreases bitterness, making it perfect for desserts.”

The experiments found that aqua blue napkins enhance the flavor of eggs and Indian food.

This is because it brings out orange and yellow as contrast colors and makes the dishes seem less salty, Lundgren said.

Coral pink helps to decrease the bitterness of dishes like grapefruit and makes meals taste sweeter, while pink or rose red works best with desserts.

Mustard yellow helps to improve the flavor of green dish such as sprouts and salads, as well as tart flavors including fish and sea food.

Anthracite gray helps to contrast the tones of lighter colored table settings and meals, meaning gray napkins give Mediterranean food a richer taste.

Julia Wood, senior product manager at Tork, said, “Restaurant operators need to provide the very best experience for customers.

“Getting creative by simply using complementary napkin colors with the dishes they serve will really make an exquisite plate of food stand out.”

有时候为晚餐约会选择对的音乐或灯光是个艰巨的任务,然而研究显示,你还应该注意你的餐巾颜色。

一份新报告研究了各种颜色的餐巾和食物口感之间的关系,结果发现,餐巾颜色也是个重要的因素。

报告显示,选择和食物最搭的餐巾颜色可以提升你晚餐的口感。

餐巾品牌多康和瑞典食物造型师、厨师琳达•隆格伦合作,用一系列各种颜色的餐巾和食物搭配。

她告诉行业杂志《餐饮承办者》说:“你怎样能让一道草莓慕斯吃起来更甜、口感更丰富?答案不是多放草莓和糖。而是应该试着用珊瑚红的餐巾搭配这个甜点。”

“珊瑚红色能提升甜味、减少苦味的感受,是甜点的完美搭配。”

该实验发现,水蓝色的餐巾能够提升鸡蛋和印度食物的口感。

隆格伦说,这是因为水蓝色与食物的橘色和黄色构成鲜明对比,从而让食物吃起来感觉不那么咸。

珊瑚红色有助于减少葡萄柚等食物的苦味,让食物吃起来感觉更甜,而粉色或玫瑰红色和甜点最配。

芥末黄有助于提升豆芽菜、沙拉等绿色食物的口感,还能让包括鱼和海鲜在内的酸味食物感觉更好吃。

煤灰色有助于与浅色的桌布和食物构成鲜明对比,这意味着灰色的餐巾能让地中海食物的口感更丰富。

多康的高级产品经理朱莉亚•伍德说:“餐厅经营者需要为顾客提供最好最优质的体验。”

“只需通过使用颜色和食物互补的餐巾这样的小创意,就会让精美食物的口感更出色。(Chinadaily.com.cn)
