Adventures in the Global Kitchen: Smell (and Taste) the Roses

Learn about the mental processes of taste and smell at this lecture with author Harold McGee (On Food and Cooking), perfumer Mandy Aftel and neuroscientist Jay Gottfried. They'll discuss the mechanisms that allow you to remember smells, plus the ways in which odor influences eating and how chefs subvert our sensory memories. To illustrate the key points, you'll be tasting and smelling wine, scented strips and other stimuli.
