Om,

What about a food you've never had?? I guess I should've been more
specific.

Mood = comfort, we all know that!

In your particular case, blAndy, it's most probably how much booze you
consume in any given day...

Is your cocktail hour an "hour" or simply a whole 24 - hour stretch...???

Though blAndy may be in the "mood" for love that is in no way a "comfort" to
the rest of us...!!!

Food I've never had? It should look and smell good, but curiosity might
prompt me if I know what the ingredients are.

I was not so picky back in college. That's how I was introduced to deep
fried calf fries. g

Imagination

Smell is a strong influence when it is available. Even Burger King can
smell good when you are hungry and downwind.

In the market, sight is more of an influence as the food on display has
little to no odor. The sight of a nice steak or roast in the meat case and
the visualization of what it will look like ready to eat is good.

I'm with you. Reading a recipe can do it for me. The other options
work too. I'm a food pushover.
