Food is any substance consumed by living organisms for energy. Most food is of plant or animal origin; notable exceptions are the fungi mushrooms and the mineral salt.

Gastronomy (from the Greek 'gastros' = stomach + 'nomos' = knowledge) is the study the relationship between food and culture; the word cuisine refers to traditions and preparation techniques related to a particular culture. The culinary arts have to do with food and kitchens. Nutrition is the study of the relationship between health and diet. Here is the US Government definition of food.

Author and food lover Orson Welles said “My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people.”

Taste Poster

Taste

While a newborn has taste buds all over the inside of the mouth, adults' taste buds are mainly on the surface of the tongue. An adult has as many as 10,000 taste buds. Taste bud cells last only a week before being renewed by the body.
The sense of taste works in conjunction with the sense of smell to create flavor. The taste of food is a combination of several factors, including the feel of the food in the mouth, its smell, and its appearance.
The temperature of food also influences taste. When food is warm or hot, it releases more chemicals into the air. These trigger our sense of smell, which increased flavor. Heat increases the flavor of sweetness, while cold decreased it. Taste buds also seem to work better at warmer temperatures.

Taste buds on the tongue are located around the base and sides of papillac.
BITTERNESS is tasted at the back of the tongue.
SOURNESS is tasted along the sides of the tongue.
SALTINESS is tasted along the side at the front of the tongue.
SWEETNESS is tasted at the front of the tongue.
