You may have heard the story about the two writers who were able to procure a can of sardines for themselves during the second world war, an occurrence which was extremely rare at the time. They opened it, began feasting on the fish, and started talking excitedly.

Suddenly, one of them cried, "My God! I swallowed without tasting it!" Caught up in the discussion, he had swallowed his portion without even feeling what he was doing.

This is exactly what you should not do.

Take some food that is salty or sweet, bitter or acidic, and savor it without trying to transform your sensations into words.
