Temperature changes the flavour of food as it changes the sensitivity of a channel in taste receptors known as TRPM5. This affects the sensitivity of sweet, bitter and umami, changing the balance of taste in food. The change in the balance of flavours is preferable to some, but not to others, depending on your palate.
