We eat by our eyes, nose and tongue. If a food smells good, tastes good and looks good, the food is tasty. The decoration is equally important. Have the plate properly organized: Garnish and add a bit permitted food colors to make it look yummy.
Have a few beverages or drinks during or after eating the food. Drinks should be light and hunger inducing. You can have more than one drinks, a perfect mix of sweet and sour. Treat for the tongue.
The remaining perfection is not in the food, but the environment surrounding it. The ambiance is equally important. Make sure you have some mild fragrances, proper lighting, clean and neatly decorated room. You can also have some music, if you prefer. This will set the proper mood for the dinner and will also add a certain appeal to it.
