The miserly taste buds on our tongues can sadly only recognize the 5 primary tastes – sweet, sour, bitter, salty and that made up one ("umami" or something). Our noses however, are capable of distinguishing billions of subtle food flavours as their aromas reach the back of our palette. We've been short-changed for too long, so the time has come to join the Aroma R-evolution.
Grab a fork from this ground-breaking kit and prepare to experience a completely new landscape of taste sensations that you never knew existed. Just insert one of the small discs of blotting paper into the handle and then use the included pipette to choose from a rich lineup of 21 exciting aromas to mix and match – basil, coffee, passion fruit and many more. As you eat, this innovative utensil provides you with a flow of potent vapours that doubles the flavours for your brain to analyse. It's an overused cliché but this truly has to be tasted to be believed.
You can use it to enhance dishes with combos you already know and love:
Curried prawns with a coriander aroma
Baked potatoes with a butter aroma
Fresh fruit with a chocolate or mint aroma
Or why not trick your mind with some more unusual pairings and enter an experimental world of culinary adventure:
Broccoli with a vanilla aroma
Chocolate with a wasabi aroma
A slice of lemon with a banana aroma
Join the revolution, subvert dining expectations and change the way you perceive flavours forever.
