The Thursday Brunch: Your Sense of Smell

Helen Farmer welcomes back Executive Chef Jitin Joshi from Taj Hotel for an olfactory Thursday Brunch Panel. Joining them at the table are Courtney Brandt from A to Za’atar and Shabnum Stumpf from BB Social Dining.

They will be discussing the sense of smell and its role in food and dining. What smells take you back to your childhood? What is your favourite culinary aroma and what feelings, sensations and memories does it inspire in you? Your sense of smell makes up to 95% of your eating experience and the number of unique smells you can register is infinite. Some restaurants purposefully pump out smells outside their premises to entice customers in. 

This week’s guess the ingredient competition offers a 500 dirham voucher for the Bombay Brasserie. Listen in to the clues and send us your guesses using the Dubai Eye app or by texting 4001.
