Science Class: On Food Memories

The scene in Ratatouille in which the snotty restaurant critic tastes rat-made ratatouille and is sent into a weepy memory of his mommy made me laugh almost as loud as the scene in Knocked Up when Leslie Mann is too constipated to fuck.

This morning on NPR, Brian Lehrer, inspired by that same scene, investigated the connection between food and memory with Amanda Hesser and the more interesting Dr. Marcia Pelchat from the Monell Chemical Senses Center. Readers, we welcome your anecdotes as always.
