Aromafork tricks the taste buds and mind through the power of smell.
Designed to enhance the dining experience, Canadian entrepreneurs have created a fork that emits aromas like lychee, passion fruit, coriander or ginger for an added olfactory layer.
It’s called the Aromafork and is a rethink on conventional cutlery.
Just above the prongs, the Aromafork includes a small hole that diffuses liquid aromas with the use of blotting papers.
Spices, fruit and nut aromas can be used to enhance the flavours of a dish, replace ingredients or perform the epicurean equivalent of a sleight of hand, tricking the taste buds and the mind through the power of smell.
The Aromafork is the latest product out of Molecule-R, a Montreal-based company that produces culinary tools like redesigned utensils and additives for ambitious home chefs who want to experiment with molecular gastronomy in their own kitchens.
It’s not the first time the fork has been reinvented. Last year, French inventors came up with the HAPIfork, an electronic fork designed to help people lose weight by vibrating when users eat too fast and reminding them to slow down.
The Aromafork package, including four forks and 21 aromas, retails for Can$58.95 (RM175). – AFP Relaxnews
