Masters of Social Gastronomy: The Flavor Battles!

Posted by 29414135 tiny Becca on jan 14, 2016 under Blog Post

On February 25, MSG will take on the history and science of imitation ingredients at the brand-new Museum of Food and Drink

Sarah will explore the history of artificial food, covering medieval "meat pitchers" and the early 20th-century chemists known as the "Poison Squad" who tested the safety of food additives by ingesting them in large quantities. Soma will dig into the science behind artificial flavorings, from what notebook paper and vanilla ice cream have in common to the secrets of Juicy Fruit gum. 

Come for the examination of NYC's own maple-syrup-scent mystery; stay for the sample-heavy natural vs. artificial flavors showdown, in which the audience will do a blind taste test to decide which ones reign supreme. Tickets also include a beer! 

Sold out!
