Food and the 5 senses

Food and the 5 senses

The aim is to understand the role our five senses play in our relationship to food. When we eat, our sensory organs collect millions of pieces of information, without us even realising. They tell us about the colour, shape, temperature, texture and taste of food to give us a complete picture of it.  

Sight, hearing and touch

Smell and taste

Odours, tastes and aromas... a dance of molecules: Their role and how they work.
