Food, Film and Synaesthesia

About Food, Film and Synaesthesia

This evening of cinema and food is a collaboration between the Edinburgh Food Studio and the University of Edinburgh Film Studies lecturers (who also happen to be foodies): Dr David Sorfa, Dr Pasquale Iannone and Dr Malgorzata Bugaj. It explores synaesthesia - described as the mingling of senses or cross-sensory perception - through a multi-sensory, creative meeting of food and film.

During the course of the evening we will explore not only images, but also sounds, smells and textures linked with cinema. The six-course dinner will be punctuated by discussions, mini-lectures and film clips related to the dishes. We promise a bright, effervescent evening filled with surprises to stimulate your taste buds and stir your imagination!

The set menu costs £50, and an optional drinks pairing menu will be available for £35. To avoid disappointment, please book in advance and let us know of your dietary requirements.

The event will be repeated over three evenings: 26th, 27th and 28th April.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Food, Film and Synaesthesia are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
