The "aroma fork" that emits odors was developed with the aim of doubling the deliciousness by further adding such "smell". Reported by the US media Cooking Channel.
The aroma fork is a fork that has a capsule at the tip of the fork to charge "aroma" and emits an odor from there. If you drip the aroma solution into the capsule with the attached dropper and then eat it with a fork, you can enjoy the aroma and the "extra" taste with each bite.
There are 21 types of aroma. In addition to "beans", "fruits" and "nuts" including chocolate and coffee, "spices" such as wasabi and ginger, and "umami" scents such as smoke and butter are also available.
According to Mole Cule-R, a website that sells aroma forks, human taste can only perceive five basic scents, while the nose (smell) can sniff out even more delicate scents. It seems that the aroma fork pays attention to it and tries to double the deliciousness of the taste by sending the "smell" directly to the nose.
Even on days when "Today's rice is only white rice (tears)", if you eat it with the scent of smoke and truffles using an aroma fork, you will be able to experience as if you were tasting high-class side dishes together. The aroma fork is $ 58.95 (shipping not included) and is currently accepting reservations.
