Week of Tastes “Discovering Taste” Workshops were presented at the Ascham School over a 3 day period.
Year 4 students took part in taste lessons; learning to discern - blindfolded - the difference between sweet, sour, salty and bitter. They learnt how all five senses affect both their taste and appreciation of food.
A baker, Michael Klausen from Brasserie Bread, a butcher and fishmonger took part. Each brought different products to taste. Teaching the food’s origin as well as the various processes used in creating it encouraged in the children both curiosity and a positive attitude towards the tasting of new foods.
