How We Taste 

This lecture will explore how we taste from the perspectives of a scientist, a chef and a food writer. Dana Small, a professor of psychiatry at Yale University, will describe how our brains respond to flavors and shed light on the link to obesity. Her research focuses on understanding the mechanisms behind flavor-preference formation, investigating the role of cognition in chemosensory perception and determining how the modern food environment impacts brain circuitry. (Small will also present a seminar, "Creating Flavor Percepts and Preferences," on May 13 at 4 p.m. as part of the UCLA Neuroscience Seminar Speaker Series.)
 
Wylie Dufresne, chef and owner of wd~50 in Manhattan, will present his creative approach to generating surprising food flavors and textures. He has been nominated for multiple James Beard awards, including nominations for best chef in New York City for seven consecutive years; he won the award in 2013. Alder, Dufresne's second restaurant, opened in Manhattan's East Village last year.
 
Peter Meehan, currently a writer and editor for the journal Lucky Peach, will discuss his experiences with food and taste and how they have shaped his writing as a cookbook author and former scribe for the New York Times.
