Imagine a world where sound has color, color has flavor, or numbers are unique personalities you know well. If any of these concepts are familiar to you, chances are you may have synaesthesia.
Our new exciting series of educational and multi-sensory dining events will run Thursday to Saturday every fortnight from February through to June 2015 at food incubator Maida Hill Place. Synaesthesia by Kitchen Theory consists of an experimental seven course modernist meal cooked by Michelin restaurant experienced chefs. This also incorporates sensory audio-visual aids and the collaboration of knowledge from academic experts. Catering for only 14 guests these events guarantee to deliver a fun insight into the world of synaesthesia – the neurological phenomenon which cross connects the senses and is thought to affect 3% of the population. Expect to be stimulated, informed, amused and delighted.
For this event series Kitchen Theory has worked with Professor Charles Spence and his team at the Cross Modal department of Oxford University, Sean Day, President of American Synesthesia Association, and Richard E. Cytowic, MD MFA, Neurologist and author of ‘Wednesday is Indigo Blue’ to understand this phenomenon and deliver an informative and interactive dining event of sensory discovery.
