Beyond the Taste Buds

Listening back to a rather good little show broadcast this week on BBC Radio 4

“Claudia Hammond tickles her taste buds and looks at the science of taste. Scientists are now discovering that our perception of taste and flavour does not just come from the tongue, but our eyes, nose and even our ears all play a crucial role.

She also discovers how the top scientists in the field can make her like the food she hates.”

Lots of interesting guys on this, such as Tony Blake who has done some really interesting stuff with the Fat Duck

Also a segment on supertasters, superfeelers and tasting PROP, which is perhaps of interest to WBC judging hopefuls.

You can listen again to the show here
I love Radio 4.
