At Sciren in Adelaide, being a foodie is in our DNA. We're also hungry for knowledge!

During this unique science tasting experience, you will learn all about the science of food flavours, aroma chemistry and why some people would rather die than eat coriander!

Over two hours, enjoy casual chats with drinks and nibbles while you learn science - but not in a classroom style! We'll provide some foods to taste and smell, so please let us know if you have any allergies.

Flavours you might experience (subject to change):

  • Identifying the differences in fruits and vegetables.
  • Tasting caramelised sugars.
  • Experiences between heated vs cooled foods.
  • Tasting different herbs and spices.
  • And more!

You'll get a glass of bubbles, beer, coffee or tea on arrival. Then we'll test our knowledge with blind tastings and smell tests to see how well we know our flavours.

Knowledge required
Beginner-friendly. This experience isn't tested and you aren't going to feel like your in Mrs Pritchard's Science class of '82 again. Having no science background is great as we're all here to learn!
What you'll get
  • Drinks and nibbles. Please note, these will be sample portions for small taste tests, you will not be having a meal.
  • Information about the science of food, delivered in a casual and social style.

Sciren offers science-based workshops by teaching science 'secretly' while we craft and chat. We want everyone to understand science, sometimes the science needs translating. We use craft and hands-on workshops to help you learn.

As a plant biotechnologist, I've gone through the education system to find I needed better ways to learn. I kept seeing crafty hobbies as distractions to my learning. Until I realised they were the perfect vehicle to my learning. Making jam - learn about plant cell walls and pectin. Making a terrarium - learn about greenhouse food production and climate change... it's so much more fun being immersed in learning this way!

We'll help you understand the world we live in by using our passion and knowledge, while we chat and have fun.
