About this talk

Making Sense of Our Senses - The Magic of Multisensory Eating and Drinking

Have you ever wondered why bacon and eggs, or cheese and pickle are the perfect combination? Who thought peanut butter would taste great with jam? The pleasure we get from eating and drinking is the sum of all the sensory experiences we have from appearance, aroma, taste, texture and sound. But on top of this is the importance of food pairings. Who thought of putting together a thing that grows underground with something that swims in the sea? We can’t be certain but that’s how we got fish and chips.  This workshop will stimulate your taste buds and open your mind to new food combinations.

Come prepared with questions that you would like our team to answer. You can type in your question to the chat box on the bottom right of the screen at any time.

The presenter will answer your questions live in the Q&A section after their talk. You don't need your camera or microphone set up for the session, all you need to do is type your questions in the chat box.
