Pleasures in food 2017


For its 6th annual meeting, the UNESCO Chair in World Food Systems will approached different aspects of pleasures which are more or less associated with the act of eating.
What are the neurobiological mechanisms of pleasure? Is sensory pleasure contributing to a healthier food? How does the food industry develop products which are linked to our senses? Is the pleasure of eating worth only if it’s shared? Furthemore, how to share more equally the art of gastronomy?
