    Cleansing the palate is most common in wine tasting, however it also used in fine dining. It involves clearing your mouth of any previous taste before trying the next item.<br />

    <br />

    With wine, tasters will try one and then before trying the next one they will have a drink of water and a piece of bread. This is done so that they can judge the next wine completely on its own (without having the taste of the previous wine in their mouth).<br />

    <br />

    The same concept could apply to fine dining where a person wants to fully indulge in each course without having the taste of the previous course still in their mouth.
