The experience of taste is significantly shaped by complex combinations of material, sensual and symbolic atmospheres and situations. This book provides an international exploration of how the temporal and sensual nature of space, place and mobility affects taste - how design, association, light and dark, sound, weather and temperature intersect with embodied social histories to inform the experience of taste. It also considers how the experience of taste can change throughout the life course, drawing on psycho-social histories of nostalgia, embodied memories of childhood, migration, trauma and displacement. This book moves beyond the psychological and neuroscience conceptualizations of taste and sensual practices of consumption, to allow to deep-rooted social dimensions of class, value and distinction is intrinsically linked to the experience of taste in complex ways.
