Mucho Gusto literal translation


I understand that "gustar" means "to be pleasing" and that "Me gusta comer" literally would translate to "Eating is pleasing to me." How would the phrase "Mucho gusto" translate? How/when would you use other conjugations of the verb gustar. Thanks in advance everyone.

"Gusto" isn't just a form of the verb "gustar". It is also a noun meaning "pleasure" or "taste". With this in mind, the phrase "mucho gusto" in isolation means literally "much pleasure".
