Short films on senses as a tool for food professionals

By Mathias Skovmand-Larsen, Nordic Food Lab / Taste for Life, and Daniel Schefte, Bad Company.

In 6 movies, “Taste for Life” and the Nordic Food Lab interview food professionals about how they use their senses in their work. How do you develop a confidence in the perception of food, and how do you express it to others?

For “Creative Tastebuds”, Nordic Food Lab would like to contribute with two short films. The documentaries are shown on iPads, shared by two persons with individual headphones. The documentaries are accompanied with taste samples that are in line with the food professionals’ work.

By presenting best practice on how to use senses as a tool in the food industry, we hope that students can apply this knowledge on their craft by trusting their senses.
