Edible: The Taste of Things to Come
The Science Gallery in Dublin is to hold an exhibition charting the stranger side of food, exploring how technology, taste, time and place shape our culinary experiences. Edible: The Taste of Things to Come will demonstrate the role of food in our evolution, exploring what ‘edible’ really means, and what our future dishes might look like.
Gastronomic treats include fortnightly curated dinners prepared by a diverse range of artists, scientists and chefs, and daily tastings of unusual and unfamiliar food created for the exhibition. There will also be an immersive exploration of a giant inflatable stomach, the chance to inhale a mist of ‘mutant peppermint’, and tasting labs to discover whether you are a ‘super-taster’.
Edible: The Taste of Things to Come will run from February 10 to April 5 2012.
