    I think this is quite common, the idea must be that they have a dish in mind rather than food in general. They could equally say "added stuff can make a meal more appealing".

    I would not have added the article, but it is sometimes countable. "Some foods are more appetizing than others" It's really a short form of "food stuffs"
