Tasteology

We'd like to invite you on a culinary journey. We've invited psychology professors, Instagrammers, gastro-chemists and more to answer the questions we're used to asking traditional chefs. And, in the process, discovered new ways of cooking that's both sensational and sustainable. Follow the project on Facebook, for the chance to get tickets for exclusive screening events.

What is Tasteology?

Tasteology is a new documentary that deconstructs taste from a new point of view. We've looked at the science and the experience, not just the flavours and ingredients. And unravelled the relationship between culture, society, science and food through four episodes: Source, Chill, Heat and Experience. So you can be inspired to Take Taste Further in the kitchen and beyond it.
