    In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the context of Human-Food Interaction (HFI) to capitalize on multisensory interactions in order to create, modify, and enhance our food-related experiences. There are two ideas that may explain this interest. First, research has provided a strong case for the fact that eating and drinking are among the most multisensory events of our everyday lives. This has paved the way to target both intrinsic and extrinsic sensory cues to design specific food experiences. Second, given the ubiquitous nature of technology and the increasing availability of multisensory-oriented devices, both researchers and practitioners have become interested in the roles that these technologies can play in food contexts.
