What makes a dish delicious? Multi-sensory cooking has become fashionable in the food world. Everyone loves to look, sniff, touch, taste and listen to ingredients as they cook and eat, but how much do you really understand the power of your five senses? Join acclaimed food writer Sybil Kapoor and a panel including columnist and broadcaster Tim Hayward, cook and social media star Elly Curshen, and food and wine writer Fiona Beckett.

During the session, they explore the role of taste, flavour (smell), texture, temperature and appearance in cooking today. They will discuss everything from the importance of aroma in promoting emotional reactions, to whether making slurping sounds enhance your enjoyment of food and certain colours intensify your response to food.
