Shaping Taste, Tasting Shape

Date: May 1, 2020

Time: 9:30 am - 11:30

Location: Glaser Center, Santa Rosa, CA

Discover your sense of taste in a whole new way with science and art. Colorful and compelling photomicrography of molecules and wine illuminates this lecture of what shapes our taste. Exploring taste we learn how to enhance our sensory pleasure of wine and food. Delving into the language of taste, we consider whether the words we use are rooted in our instinctual knowledge or our imagination. We may even enjoy an imaginary glass of wine. This lecture brings to light the knowledge hidden in our molecules of wine and taste.
