Topic areas


Please note that the talk is 5:30pm - 7:30pm.

Abstract  This talk will explore the nature of tastes and tasting. Are tastes in the food and liquids we consume or merely subjective experiences in us? Is there a difference between what expert and novice tasters perceive, or do experts just know more about what they are eating or drinking? I will defend the claim that there are objective facts about the flavours of the foods and wines we consume and look at the different ways experts and novices come to know about them.
