Ever wondered about how your sense of taste works? If so, then you'll want to attend this exclusive event taking place on South William Street this month.
To celebrate this year's Science Week, The Science Of Taste will take place upstairs at Farrier & Draper on November 13, where sensory scientist Jess Newman will explain why things taste the way they do, why some people taste things differently to others, and why older people seem to enjoy food less than younger people.
To demonstrate just how our sense of taste works, attendees will be given a selection of samples to taste. At the end of the session, there will be a Q&A where you can pose any and every questions that you still have for Jess. Drinks at the bar will also be discounted for guests, so the fun needn't stop once the event finishes.
A nutritionist will also be on hand to answer questions such as;
- What causes us to have room for dessert, even when we're full?
- How does our body react to Sugar?
- Why do we become tired after a big meal?
If you're exceptionally curious and something of a foodie, The Science Of Taste is right up your street.
The whole ethos of the event, and of Science Week this year in general, is to StopAndAsk, a call to action for people to stop and ask the questions that they’ve always wanted to know the answer to. Science Week has set up a series of events around the city with the aim of answering as many questions as possible to help people see that science can actually be a bit of craic.
In fact, if you tweet a scientific question using the hashtag #StopAndAsk right now, Science Week organisers will do their best to give you an answer.
