There's nothing like walking into a house when there's a delicious cake in the oven. Olivia Atkinson looks into the science of why in her story on neurogastronomy this week, whilst David Parker sets his sights on a gastronomic challenge in the name of reviewing Dominique Ansel's new cookbook. Scent your house with his Apple Tarte Tatin this weekend (also linked in David's story) or with these two delicious cake recipes! Online Editor,
