I'm usually a very fast eater. Always have been, since I was a kid. BUT, when I'm eating something great, like in an upscale restaurant with very fine food, or a special or unusual meal, I purposefully take my time and savor it.
Naturally fast eater here. I sometimes forget to taste the food. I can visually see it looks delicious, smells great... I'll take a bite, then all of a sudden it's gone. I've been trying to slow down my pace but it's hard to do. I have a ton of other things on my mind all the time and get distracted very easily.
Nice restaurant: >usually a drink or two before, so ravenous hunger stifled a little. Plus a drink or two with the actual meal. >enjoy the atmosphere and conversation. Unwind.
Same with my own cooking: Cheap shit/leftovers tossed together: >don't even have time to taste it.
Cooking something quality/time consuming: >tend to 'check taste' to the point of nibbling/snacking as I'm cooking. >usually glasses of wine or beers involved as well >by the time I'm done I'm only still hungry for a light/moderate plate I eat slowly and enjoy while thinking about dishes.
In general it comes down to: >eating for sustenance. v.s. >eating for pleasure.
>>7306037 I guess to answer the op question >slowly and with a couple drinks.
Computer and phone is distracting. Background music and/or conversation actually help me engage the meal too. Especially conversation. Maybe because it gives me time to break up the meal and mentally process/understand it as I eat it..?
If it's really great then I'll touch my chin twice with it before I put in my mouth and then moan loudly with my mouth full while making eye contact with people at the table. This heightens my sense of enjoyment.
