Our rogue food stand popped up at the wonderful community street festival, Street Life. Featuring culinary oddities that befuddled noses, tongues and brains, we revealed why flavour is not always what you expect.

From inside our giant pink booth, Sensory scientists Imogen Ramsey and Marit Nijman from the University of Nottingham hacked taste buds and exposed the secret world of flavour perception with a multi-sensory smorgasbord. Guests explored this menu of edible demonstrations that trick the senses, and uncovered the role that each sense plays in the experience of taste.
