The full sensory experience. I want to eat here!

The full sensory experience. I want to eat here! | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Dinner at the Shanghai restaurant Ultraviolet sounds like the full sensory experience.

 

Guests are driven to the windowless venue from another meeting spot by two vans. Once seated their 22 banquet is matched with sound effects, light projections and wine (of course).

 

Our full sensual experience massively influences our experience of food and wine, so this sounds like the perfect way to enjoy an amazing meal.

 

I really want to eat here, it's just a little bit far from home. Anyone want to have a crack a doing a pop-up in Sydney along the same lines???

Eat like an economist, dine like a king - book review

Eat like an economist, dine like a king - book review | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

The Indie's Will Dean reviews "Eat like an economist, dine like a king" by Tyler Cowen.

 

This book's gone on my reading list. It sounds like a great bit of fun, possibly with some useful advice.

 

It's nice to hear about a very intelligent person writing with some whit about things that they love. It sounds like a great mix of advice, background and economics.

Anthony Bourdain's mad about being hijacked into a commercial

Anthony Bourdain's mad about being hijacked into a commercial | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

I admire Anthony Bourdain. A chef who gets on with cooking and eating, and a presenter who loves to share his passion.

 

On his blog, Bourdain writes about how The Travel Channel have stooped low to try and make it look like he's endorsing a car brand. They've also created three Frankenshows, re-using clips from previous episodes.

 

It sounds like he's stinking mad, and rightly so.

 

I wonder where he'll appear next??

French cows reared on fine wine - Telegraph

French cows reared on fine wine  - Telegraph | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

French cows are enjoying up to two bottles of high quality wine every day as farmers attempt to produce the best beef in Europe.

 

With echoes of beer-fed Kobe beef, Vinbovin of France seems to be catching on with wealthy diners. These pampered cows produce a supposedly superior hunk of beef.

 

I'm not to sure about the chances of picking up notes of Muscat if they switch grapes, but maybe the cows will prefer the taste?
