Youseff worked with the Cross-Modal department of Oxford University, as well as the American Synaesthesia Association and some world leading neurologists to create this unique dining experience. Guests will be served an experimental, seven course dinner (or a three course lunch) which will combine Youssef’s molecular gastronomy techniques with sensory audio-visual aids, as it attempts to recreate the sensory associations experienced by sufferers of synaesthesia, at food incubator Maida Hill Place.
On the menu are elusive dishes such as The Sight and Sound of Flavour, Marinetti – Cubist Vegetable Patch and Flavour is the Palate of the Beholder. Kitchen Theory's not giving anything else away, though, so we'll have to get down there and see (taste? hear?) the food for ourselves.
The dishes are designed to provide stimulation for all the senses: this fascinating and immersive dining experience will undoubtedly provide much food for thought among gastronomes and scientists alike. Tickets are bound to sell out quickly, though, so booking is essential.
