Aside from chopsticks usually being made out of wood, which tasted considerably better than say iron or even silver in later years, it was the way in which this unusual method of eating allowed you to interact with your food that really changed the experience. We do have our own Studio William stainless steel chopsticks available, but we wanted to take this one step further with innovative design and thus, our Taster Tweezers were born.
Our Creative Dining range is designed to enhance and augment the perception of flavour and turn the process of eating into a multi-sensory experience. We’ve got Taster Spoons, cleverly crafted to target the tongue’s papillary receptors, textured flatware to stimulate the tongue and lips in a whole new way and here, of course, our Taster Tweezers, offering the perfect solution for singling out and bringing to life flavours perhaps otherwise overlooked or underappreciated.
A report published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, found that fewer and smaller bites of food leads to a more satisfying experience all-round, thanks to the brain retaining a far clearer memory of that first, tantalising taste. Using our Taster Tweezers allows the diner to explore the enjoyment of a dainty mouthful in such a way that is quite different from that which you get from a forkful, for example.
