For anyone in Adelaide looking for a sensory experience next Monday night, come along!


Why do we feel better after a home-cooked meal? Have you ever wondered why people crave chocolate, or why eating your favourite food makes you happy? Is it the taste, the texture, or something else?

Join Dr John Prescott, Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Newcastle, and the Science Exchange's very own chefs, Cole Thomas and Aaron Gillespie, for an interactive exploration of the innovative art of flavour. Our intrepid trio will demonstrate how humans use their sense of taste, and explain how to control the depth and intensity of flavour or aroma in any given dish. They'll explore the relationship between the taste and smell of food, and ask how you might use this to create the right mood.

Watch, learn and taste as - using the latest culinary techniques and, of course, some mood-altering ingredients - your hosts prepare delicious samples to prove their points.

In association with Culinetic
