Our sense of smell and how we experience aromas are influenced by a number of factors. In this podcast from Adventures in the Global Kitchen, “Smell and Taste the Roses,” explore how the human brain processes sensory input, and how memory influences eating desires and habits.

Join the discussion with Howard McGee, author of “On Food and Cooking;” perfumer Mandy Aftel; and nueuroscientist Jay Gottfield of Northwestern University.

The next Global Kitchen event, “Rooftop Farming: The New Frontier,” takes place at the Museum on April 27, 2011. Learn more about this monthly series of talks and tastings.
