Food science

Just yesterday, Wired had an interesting interview with Brian Wansink, the director of the Food and Brand Lab at Cornell. Probably my favorite fact from the interview:

People end up serving themselves 25 percent more on a 12 inch plate than on a 10 inch plate. But if you ask them about it, they’ll deny that.

The website has a lot of other really cool stuff as well.

(Incidentally, they have an article summary of their report that at least in part covers plate sizes, as well as the full report  [PDF].)
