ALL ABOUT US
The missing link
The Alchemist Tastelab is an non-profit organisation, that links the gastronomy explored and developed inside Alhcemist to the foodculture outside the restaurants four walls.
It uses an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to investigate the boundaries of gastronomy through the latest techniques and scientific findings. Here interns form Universities and other fields are our driving force to explore and reflect upon food, culture and people. A networking hub connecting chefs to for example researchers, producers, farmers and engineers.
A large part of TASTElab is education, with the aim to expand food knowledge and raise awareness of food culture and diversity in coming generations. Therefore kids are in focus, when our MINITASTE visit festivals and events, create teaching material for schools or nerdy youtube-videos.
At the core of the lab lies an open source philosophy. If we all work together we will see a stronger development than if everyone only sticks to themselves. We plan to share our findings in different ways to different audiences on the lab’s platforms. Tastelab is spearheaded by gastro-physicist Louise Beck Brønnum.
THE AESTHETICAL TASTE
Many aspects of “taste” have been explored, explained and conceptualized. In our TASTE, the word refers to an aesthetically taste. TASTE ALCHEMIST hopes to create the bridge verbalised and non-verbalised between the other “tastes”. The physiological taste, and our backpacks social and cultural Taste. Within the name of a philosophical interpretation of the word TASTE, we hope to stimulate your appetite through creating a retelling of the beauty.
