Something unrelated to coffee, but if you are in London then something super interesting. I’ve posted in the past about LGS events, because I think most coffee people are interested in all aspects of food and tasting.
There are two upcoming events and you’ll want to make it to both if you can:
6.30pm Friday 8th July – Multimodal Flavour Perception
Venue: Senate House, Malet Street, WC1
Charles Spence and Barry C Smith will explore the neuroscience and philosophy of tasting with some practical demonstrations, and explore the role the brain plays in the pleasures of eating.
7pm Wednesday 13th July – The Miraculous Egg
Venue: Westminster Kingsway College, Vincent Square, SW1P
Some of you who might be aware of the weekly egg consumption at the SQM HQ, and will find no surprise in how excited I am about this one. For those raising a concerned/curious eyebrow – the egg is incredibly fascinating (and delicious) to me. The range of recipes that use it – the range of textures of which it is capable – are astonishing. This will be very interesting.
