Aesthetics of Food and Drink


About this Course

The concept of aesthetics relates to the gastronomic education of the senses. Sensory taste is considered as a particular type of knowledge and, accordingly, the way that specific historical, cultural and aesthetic conditions determine and influence the experience of taste is explored. This module takes a broadly philosophical and critical approach to aesthetic experience as it pertains to food, wine and other drinks, with the aim of fostering an appreciation of taste’s contribution to knowledge, ethical living and community well-being.

This module aims to provide participants with the opportunity to critically examine and judge food and drink quality and explore the multi-dimensional factors that influence one’s sense of taste.
