Some people seem to spend more time taking pictures of their food than eating it! But guess what?  A recent study recently published in the journal Psychological Science suggests that posting an image of a dish on social media before digging in may actually make it taste better….

Researchers from the University of Minnesota and Harvard Business School found that the ritual of snapping a photo enhances the enjoyment of consumption because of the greater involvement in the experience.

But a growing number of restaurants are banning food photos on the grounds that it’s distracting to other patrons. What? How can taking a picture of your food be ‘distracting’ to other diners?

Do you post pics of your food and especially nice meals before you eat?
