A Recipe For Friendship: Similarity in Food Consumption Promotes Affiliation and Trust
We find similar food consumption creates friendship and increases trust through shared experience. Friends eat more similarly than strangers and observers perceive people eating similarly are friends (studies 1-2). Shared food experience connects strangers consuming similarly (studies 3-4). Subsequently, strangers consuming similarly trust and cooperate more when negotiating (study 5).
