Heston says yes, biscuits taste better when they are dunked

Food experts at The University of Nottingham have helped Heston Blumenthal scientifically answer a question that has bothered him since childhood — yes, chocolate biscuits do taste better after they’ve been dunked in tea. Now he wants to produce an academic paper on the subject.

The team from the Division of Food Sciences in the School of Biosciences came to the Michelin Star chef’s aid during the filming of his latest Channel 4 TV series – Heston’s Fantastical Food. The results will be shown tonight in episode three of the new series which goes out on Channel 4 at 9pm on Tuesday nights.
