The nose knows

Did you know that the taste buds on your tongue only detect if foods are sweet, sour, salty or bitter?  So how do you “taste” if you are eating liver or swiss cheese?  The aroma hits the smell receptors in your nose which send the smell signal to your brain.  Your brain quickly processes the aroma and you get the message you have something “yucky” or pleasant in your mouth.
