Flavor Trip X Braised & ConfusedPosted By Jennifer Ho Nov 15 2011 · 2 comments · Events
Braised and Confused hosted its first official blog event this past Saturday night. Bloggers – Sabrina from the Sassy Foodophile, Emilie from La Bouche Pleine, Boris from The Gluttoners, Monty from the Montreal Restaurant Club , Liz from Bubble Tea for Dinner, Andy from aaandy, Jack from Daily XY and deep house DJ Lemy Leopard – and a host of friends alike joined forces to share a gastronomical experience unlike any other with the help of the miracle berry.
This is a fruit originating from West Africa that contains miraculin, an active molecule that changes your taste buds for 30-60 minutes, making anything sour turn sweet. Check out this article by the New York Times for more information. Guinness tasted like a chocolate milk shake, Pabst about 100X better, lemons, limes and grapefruits were sweet as candy, goat’s cheese tasted like cheesecake, raw onions lost their sharp flavor (but you could still feel it in your nose) and balsamic vinegar tasted like a sweeter, tangier version of itself (ayup, we did shots).
A big thanks to all who made it out to flavor trip with us. For those who couldn’t, make sure to stay tuned for our next event!
