Our senses are our most valuable tools in the kitchen and at the product development bench, guiding flavor exploration and discovery, and helping us to identify patterns of deliciousness. In industry and academia, flavor science and technology are converging with global cuisines and culinary techniques, creating an ideal environment for cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovation. In this presentation we will describe the physiology and function of the senses, and the multimodality of flavor perception.  We will cover the fundamentals of sensory evaluation techniques (tools used by the food industry to develop new, and augment existing, food products). We will discuss how to harness flavor diversity to identify and engage unique customer segments, and address looming environmental and health and wellness imperatives connected to our food production systems. Tastings will be provided.
