Food can be comforting when we are stressed. It can be a pleasure in leisure time. It can be shared with family and friends. Food can trigger different senses but we may not have felt it whole-heartedly.

Tutors then lead participants to use techniques of exploration and five senses to taste and feel the food with a beginner mindset. Instead of the taste of the snack, our attitude influences our experience. Learning how to appreciate makes ordinary food savoury.
