AEG Tasteology
A lot of people ask if science gets in the way of creativity...doesn't the creativity get in the way of science? In the documentary Tasteology, AEG takes you on a trip from the ingredients from source to plate. It gives us the insight of science that makes our food even more tasty. Tasteology is a documentary that deconstructs taste from a new point of view. ‘We've looked at the science and the experience, not just the flavours and ingredients. Through our five episodes you can be inspired to Take Taste Further in the kitchen and beyond it.’  Jonnie Boer will invite you during Taste to take a seat at Tasteology’s table.
