The week in pictures

Hot Take of the Week came courtesy of Heston Blumenthal, who claims to have a trick up his sleeve that makes any wine taste better — think about someone you love while you’re drinking it.

To test the theory, he told the Sydney Morning Herald you should then take another sip while thinking of someone you actively dislike.

Blumenthal believes the difference in how we perceive the wine is down to the link between taste and memory, which he discovered while researching the relationship between the brain and the gut with the University of Marseilles.
