Our rogue food stand will be popping up at the wonderful community street festival, Street Life. Discover why flavour is not always what you expect, as you taste and smell culinary oddities that will befuddle your nose, tongue and brain.

Sensory perception neuroscientists will hack your taste buds and expose the secret world of flavour perception. Sample a series of delectable delights designed to confuse your sense of taste, touch, hearing, smell and sight.

From inside our giant pink booth, a multi-sensory smorgasbord will provide a journey through all of the under-appreciated aspects of flavour. Select from our menu of edible demonstrations that trick the senses, explore the multisensory nature of food, and uncover the role that each sense plays in the experience of taste.

You’ll walk away rethinking everything you thought you knew about your tongue.
