Nova - neuroscience of taste

Tonight's Nova ScienceNow episode which will be shown on some PBS tv stations is described as follows:

The neuroscience of taste, which involves all of the senses and memory, is examined. Included: why some foods, like chocolate-chip cookies, are deemed delectable while others, such as cookies made with worms, are not; how the taste buds can be fooled.

Personally, I think the worms thing may have less to do with neuroscience than psychology.
