Gulp! The Science of Food

Sunday 28 February, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Suitability: Adults


A two-man live show looking at the science and culture of food, GULP! is presented by award-winning science broadcaster Jonathan McCrea (RTE/Newstalk) and Dalkey Food Company geek chef Ivan Varian.

Sample a 9-course meal on stage and explore the countless factors that affect how we enjoy our food, from how our eyes and nose deceive us to how our genetics divide us into tasters and supertasters.

Try centipedes and waterbugs, pig brains, 100-year-old eggs and antifood as we look at the future of food in 2050. Bite into raw lemons and enjoy dry Ice cream and “Ghost Chili” flavoured chocolate for dessert. Prepare for a meal you’ll never forget.
