Why do meals look tastier in commercials (than in real life)?

Because they’re not real meals. Each dish, dessert, and drink has been carefully prepared and arranged by a “food stylist,” a special food photographer who uses all sorts of sneaky tricks to make dishes look scrumptious for commercials, cookbooks, and menus. The stylist stuffs baked chicken with napkins to plump it up and paints burgers with burnt matches to stimulate grill marks. Milk is substituted with kindergarten glue so cereals don’t look soggy. Dish soap is dabbled on the surface of drinks to give that fresh-poured look. Um, yum?
