Molecular Gastronomy in Galway

Friday, September 4th, 2009

Adrian Mont, part of is organising what may be an interesting ‘Taste and Smell’ event in Galway City Museum with food scientist David Jackson*.

“The event will consist of short-format presentations, interwoven with breaks for hands on demonstrations and interactive exploration on taste, smell, physiology, psychology and Molecular Gastronomy.”

So all you budding Heston’s around the Galway area on Sept 26th can think of heading along. As it happens a Stag Party takes me to Galway that weekend so keep an eye out, I’ll be the one smelling of Guinness.
