BURGDORF, Switzerland — The most flavorful cheese might just be the most funky.
An independent panel determined the tastiest cheese, which had a "discernibly stronger smell and stronger fruitier taste," listened to A Tribe Called Quest's "Jazz (We've Got)."
"The differences were very clear, in term of texture, taste, the appearance, there was really something very different," Benjamin Luzuy, a Swiss TV chef and jury member, told Reuters TV.
Researchers used mini transmitters to infuse the music with the cheese. The sound waves were played at low, medium and high frequencies. A control cheese was not exposed to any music.
The cheeses were taste-tested twice by the judges, with the results being basically the same.
Researchers next want to experiment with different hip-hip music.
