How linen makes a meal

Remarkably, simply eating at a table laid with a linen tablecloth makes your meal taste better.

In a recent study led by Dr Jing Liu of Copenhagen University, she was able to show the experience of eating out was more than just about the food. Diners were asked to rate their eating experience after eating at a table laid with a linen tablecloth or without. Those customers who ate at tables with linen, ate more and reported their meal tasted better! The experiment was achieved with 250 paying diners in a French restaurant. 75% said while food quality was important the linen was key with white being their preferred choice. How about that?
