Sonic Seasoning

Food and Wine

13 Jan 2019

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre

World Premiere

Can melody make food taste better? Do harmonies alter flavour perception? Will music enhance the hedonic experience of tasting wine and cheese?

These are the questions that prompted Franco-Australian cheese expert and music lover Valerie Henbest (The Smelly Cheese Shop) to look into the impact of a full sensory experience through cheese, wine and music.

Together with Adelaide’s Zephyr Quartet, this dynamic collaboration will explore the relationship between the five senses and fine food through a musical journey.

The Smelly Cheese Shop: Valerie Henbest

Zephyr Quartet: Belinda Gehlert, Emily Tulloch, Jason Thomas, Hilary Kleinig
