FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH
A new tasting series! Discover what really creates the flavour of your favourite crisps, the sweeties your ate as a child, or the perfect chocolate.
Blending science, nostalgia and pop culture, Flavour of the Month demystifies the previously closed world of flavour, while taking your noses and tastebuds on an entirely different sort of edible journey.
At Flavour of the Month, flavourist Steve Pearce of Omega Ingredients helps us deconstruct a different food each time. We invite you to sample some of the thousands of individual materials harnessed by the people who formulate our favourite foods. Ever tried 2,3,5-Trimethyl Pyrazine on its own before? Want to know what Guaiacol's like? Well now you can!
