Ever though that food needs a bit more flavour? Well, now you can add it while eating with the lattest in molecular gastronomy and food  design: the Aroma Fork, a fork that will change the way you perceive flavors. Invented by Montreal-based company Molecule-R, The fork releases scents as you eat with it and “tricks your mind” to detect enhanced flavors.

How does it work, you ask. Its simple. Your tastebuds recognize five tastes – sweetness, sourness, saltiness, bitterness and umami. Your nose, on the other hand, can detect up to a trillion smells. By releasing aromas, the Aroma Fork gets your brain working double duty, getting it to perceive aromas on top of tastes. A capsule of liquid aroma sits under the fork’s handle and soaks through a small piece of blotting paper to emit a whiff of fragrance with every bite gradually throughout the meal. You can choose within a range of 1 different flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, passionfruit, basil and mint.
