Enter the Magical World of Flavour
Natasha Blok shares what the prompt 'taste' evokes for her.
Alive 01: Taste
Close your eyes and immerse yourself in the essence of the lesser publicised, though no less powerful, ‘Big Five’: salt, sour, bitter, sweet, umami. An altogether different type of safari with a voyage of discoveries to be had.
Taste: the natural companion to texture and appearance.
Combine it with aroma and enter the magical world of flavour. Hear the ‘word’ and feel it; notice each sip, slurp and smack of your lips, tongue and teeth. The sounds that accompany and the senses that surround.
With that, I invite you to ‘taste’ all the abundant treasures available to you today with all your senses.
