A Wine and Food Lover’s Guide to Queenstown

The dramatic landscape of the Queenstown Lakes region has shaped its food and beverage culture. There are some of the world’s southernmost vineyards here alongside a vast array of restaurants inspired by cuisines from around the world and culinary experiences boasting a long list of accolades.

Queenstown is known for its international and cosmopolitan dining offering, but you also don’t have to stray far to find relaxed Kiwi fare. Read on for your guide to Queenstown’s food and wine scene. 


Taco Medic

Queenstown CBD: the multi-cultural offering

Queenstown’s CBD is small, but it packs a punch. Nestled around Lake Wakatipu, this is the multi-cultural heart of the town with scores of bars, restaurants, cafes and eateries to try.

You’ll find Asian-fusion, South American, Japanese, South African, Italian and traditional Kiwi cuisine within walking distance here. From quick bites like Erik’s Fish and Chips (13 Earl Street) and Taco Medic (3 Searle Lane), to margaritas at Margo’s (22 Ballarat Street) and Pacific-inspired cocktails at Pacific/Asian fusion restaurant Blue Kanu, there’s something to suit every occasion.

There’s also rooftop bars, laid-back pubs and even a jazz lounge (the Sofitel’s opulent 1789 Lounge, 8 Duke Street). Sip whiskey and nibble charcuterie at Rodd & Gunn’s The Lodge Bar (2 Rees Street) or drink champagne while enjoying a long, autumnal sunset at Sundeck (top floor, 4 The Mall).

For a truly unique experience, bring your own bottle to the table at The Cow Pizzeria (Cow Lane) – one of the town’s longest-running restaurants.

The CBD is the best place in Queenstown to soak up the town’s cosmopolitan vibes and try something different as you watch the last of the sun sparkle on the glistening waters of the lake.


Aosta in Arrowtown

Arrowtown: old-school charm

This historic mining town is just 25 minutes’ drive from the centre of Queenstown and well worth visiting for the food alone (never mind all the incredible history and scenic walks).

Stone cottages and historic buildings that were once home to gold miners and stall holders are now classy restaurants and bars. You’ll find rustic and fine dining here, from the down-to-earth Kiwi fare at the Fork and Tap (51 Buckingham Street) to sensational tapas and cocktails at La Rumbla (54 Buckingham Street).

Good views and delectable slow-cooked brisket are to be found at new bistro restaurant The Dishery, next to the Arrow River Reserve. Or, take a trip to Northern Italy at Aosta, a collaboration between top chef Ben Bayly and Sir Michael Hill. 

Akarua Wines & Kitchen by Artisan (265 Arrowtown-Lake Hayes Road) is another stand-out eatery in a heritage building. This collaboration between well-known Bannockburn winery Akarua and exclusive catering company Artisan Catering is well worth stopping by for.

The oh-so-Instagrammable Arrowtown area won’t disappoint your taste buds.



Frank’s Eatery

Frankton: where locals dine and play

The growing suburb of Frankton is where many locals dine and play.

For a casual afternoon beverage and snack, make sure you head down to Frankton Marina and stop in at brewery and tap room Altitude Brewing to refresh yourself with the latest craft brew. Or, wander over to the historic Boat Shed Café & Bistro, just a stone’s throw away, and grab a coffee and sweet treat right on the lakeside.   

Remarkables Park Town Centre is home to plentiful bars, cafes and restaurants and is close to the airport. Here, Odelay Café is great for families, Frank’s Eatery is known for its great range of food and Giovo has brought an Italian flair to the area with excellent pasta, pizza and ice cream. 

Queenstown Central is the latest addition to Frankton’s booming retail and cafe offering. Head there for fresh handmade tacos from Taco Medic, free range chicken burgers from Love Chicken, or a peruse around the fashion boutiques all located within easy walking distance. 

On Saturdays, head to the Remarkables Market (Red Barn, Remarkables Park) to buy and taste local produce and baked goods. Wander the stalls with a coffee and cinnamon scroll and take in the sights (and smells) of great food while shopping for local vegetables, cheeses and teas.



Mt Rosa Wines

Gibbston: the wine lover’s destination

Rugged mountain beauty, schist rock and rows and rows of vines. This has to be Gibbston, home to some of the oldest vineyards in the region and one of the world’s southern-most wine growing regions.

Gibbston is a picturesque part of Central Otago’s wine-growing community and home to award-winning pinot noir producers, boutique accommodation and fantastic restaurants. Just a 30-minute drive from downtown Queenstown, you can take a shuttle, guided wine tour or hire a bike and explore the vineyards by cycle trail.

But there’s not just wine to be found here. Gibbston Tavern (8 Coal Pit Road) dishes out exceptional wood-fired pizzas and serves up the region’s fine wines as well as having local craft and New Zealand beers on tap.

What is wine without a little cheese? The Gibbston Valley Cheese company crafts cheese from New Zealand sheep, cow and goat milk. A cheese platter goes down very well with local wines after biking through the vines. If you want to buy cheese to take home, you’ll find their new shop in Arrowtown (25 Ramshaw Lane).


Cargo Brewery at Waitiri Creek

Other fabulous food experiences in Queenstown

Queenstown has a burgeoning craft beer scene. There are award-winning pilsners and hard stouts brewed beneath the mountains and you’ll find tap rooms everywhere from Gorge Road to Frankton, Gibbston to Arrowtown.

Glacial waters make for great distilling and if you’re looking for something a little stronger to drink, try Arrowtown-made Rifters Gin a small-batch boutique gin made with New Zealand sourced ingredients.

You might be surprised to learn than Queenstown is also home to premium sake brewers, Zenkuro. Behind an unassuming door in Repco Boulevard near central Queenstown is New Zealand’s first sake brewery. The team here have captured international attention by scooping up five awards at the London Sake Challenge.

Food Lovers Masterclass – New Plymouth

Is your fridge bursting at the seams? Is your compost bin filling up? Are your chickens a bit fat? Perhaps you are wasting food.

At this educational workshop you’ll learn the ‘what, why, and how’ of Kiwis’ food waste, and leave with the knowledge and strategies to make a real difference and save money! This workshop is suitable for all households, flats, ages, and stages – everyone will learn something.

What’s more is you’ll receive a pack full of food waste minimisation products to help you can put things into practice straight away! Your pack is worth $120, and this is all included in your low ticket price!

“I took my 9 year old daughter to a Foodlovers Masterclass last night! We both had a great time! Kate is clearly passionate about reducing waste and shared some astonishing facts and some really helpful tips! Miss 9 loved it! Thanks so much xx.” – Feedback from a recent attendee.

About Kate:

For over 10 years, Kate Meads has been travelling the country delivering waste minimisation seminars, with topics ranging from cloth nappies, right through to re-usable coffee cups. Kate is extremely passionate about her work and believes that education and the sharing of knowledge is one of the most powerful tools we have in the battle against waste. Kate strongly believes that “If everyone did just one small thing for our environment every single day, we will start to make a difference that will count”.

Kate’s down-to-earth humorous kiwi approach to waste minimisation proves that you don’t have to turn your house upside down or drastically change the way you live to cut back on the amount of rubbish you throw away.

Our aim is to get everyone to make just one change in their day-to-day life. The reality is, if we all just did something different each day i.e Taking your own cup for your coffee or even just recycling correctly – collectively we would make a massive difference.

Kate also prides herself on being “real”. She often jokes with her audiences about the fact that she isn’t perfect, nor does she expect anyone to be. This presentation is perfect for people who don’t know where to start, as well as those who want to learn more about where their waste goes and what they can do about it.

Ticket Info:
• The ‘Individual’ Ticket admits one person and you receive one free pack of waste minimisation products.
• The ‘Couples’ Ticket admits two people to the workshop and you will receive one free pack. So, if you’d like to get a pack each, make sure to book individual tickets for each attendee.
• There are limited spaces and packs available.

First-time event for Manawatū food lovers

The National Chef’s Conference is an event not-to-be missed by any foodie wanting to experience what the Manawatū food and hospitality industry has to offer.

Held over the second weekend of July across multiple venues, this is the NZ Chefs Conference first visit to Palmerston North thanks to the support of Palmerston North City Council, CEDA, Food HQ, Massey University and UCOL.

The event will feature an expo held at UCOL’s Manawatū Campus on July 8th, where big names such as Nestle, Fonterra and Gilmours will be on-site among local suppliers stalls from Emoyeni Microgreens, Artisan Kitchen and Cartwheel Creamery to name a few.  As well as a food-lovers dream, the event is also an opportunity for upcoming hospitality talent to experience the various opportunities for growth and business in an ever-changing industry. 

Damian Peeti, the Manawatū/Whanganui President of the Central Branch of Chefs Association was behind the successful proposal to have the 2019 Conference hosted in Palmerston North.   Damian, who also works at UCOL, says that the event will be a great opportunity for local businesses to promote their product and to inspire professionals in the hospitality industry.

“This event is a great time for chefs across the country to come together to celebrate industry talent and keep up to date with current trends.  We are grateful that UCOL has contributed their space for the expo part of the event.  This is a great way for the community to join in with the conference and for students to see how their learning can be developed into a career.”

Ian Drew, UCOL Senior Lecturer in Hospitality and Chef Programme Leader, is enthusiastic about the upcoming event and what it will do for local business and community.

“I’m delighted to be involved through UCOL in the 2019 NZ Chefs conference, as it gives us an opportunity to shine a light on the Manawatū, in particular the great local producers, award winning cafes, bars and restaurants as well as the great opportunities for hospitality education and training the region offers.”

Other local sub-committee members of the Central Branch of Chefs Association include Grant Kitchen from Brew Union, Reuben Leung-Wai from Gilmours, Matt Jeans from Manawatū Chamber of Commerce, Sean Kereama from Wharerata, Helen Brown and Ken Thompson from NZ Chefs.

Food lovers rejoice: Introducing Lucky Street meal kits

Popular foodie destination, The Lucky Taco, now offers customers home delivered ‘ready to assemble’ bundles under its new brand, Lucky Street Meal Kits. Owners Sarah and Otis Frizzell are the masterminds behind both ventures, we spoke to Sarah about the new offerings and what fans of The Lucky Taco now have to look forward to.

Popular foodie destination, The Lucky Taco, now offers customers home delivered ‘ready to assemble’ bundles under its new brand, Lucky Street Meal Kits. Owners Sarah and Otis Frizzell are the masterminds behind both ventures, we spoke to Sarah about the new offerings and what fans of The Lucky Taco now have to look forward to. 

1) What was the initial thoughts behind the creation of this service?

To launch a street-eats inspired meal kit delivery service. We’ve seen the demand for more convenience for our customers since launching Lucky Taco meal kits into Supermarkets. 

2) How do you think your service differs from other home meal options?

Lucky Street is a meal kit delivery solution for people that prefer dumplings, noodles, curries, burgers and tacos over meat and three veg. We offer an evolving line-up of the best street eats for you to recreate at home in just a few easy steps.

3) How much preparation on your side goes into the first stages of the meals?

A lot! Together with our ever-expanding food family, we make all the sauces. Marinade the meats. Prepare the veggies / salads and slaws. Prep the serve size etc…We’ve also created online cooking tutorials for people to watch as they build their Lucky Street creations at home. No complicated recipe cards and also trying to reduce packaging where we can, just quick n’ easy videos.

4) Have there been any difficulties in regards to the startup that you have had to adapt to?

There’s always difficulties regarding startups. Yes. I’m constantly making updates to the website, to try and suit our customers needs. As a startup, we didn’t want or have the cash to spend on a customised site – so we’re using a Shopify template. It’s great, but must work within the template. If successful, we’ll move to a more custom experience for our customers once we’ve received feedback.

5) Tell us a bit about the ingredients you use and the inspiration behind the meals.

We use top quality free range and locally sourced produce, as well as exotic flavours from all over the world to complement each of our Lucky ‘Amigos’ dishes. Maximum flavour. And mimimal effort for our customers. All of our food family use exotic and delicous ingredients and flavours in their dishes. Which is what sets our meal kits apart from all the rest. We have Mexican / Chinese Malaysian / Brazilian Japanese Korean Fusion / Thai & South Indian flavours.

6) Do you think a demand for convenience has caused the spike in ready-made meal options?

Absolutely. People want to eat delicious / exciting and well balanced food without having to think about shopping, cooking & preparing it. We still know people like to cook and eat out, which is why we’ve launched with a maximum of two meals a week – which gives our customers flexibility.

7) The Lucky Taco is a popular destination for Auckland Foodies, how will you bring that experience to their homes?

With the launch of The Lucky Taco’s award winning retail products into grocery, it became impossible to juggle both the demands of cooking, cleaning, serving and operating the taco truck as well as the production and manufacture of products into Supermarkets (which is no mean feat). We do still pop-up in our trusted spot at 230 Ponsonby Rd about once a month to see our regulars and catch-up! 

But the launch of Lucky Street essentially enables our customers to have a taco truck in their kitchen – as well as some of the best flavours New Zealand has on offer. 

With Lucky Street, we’re giving people the edible tools to unleash their culinary rockstar!

It’s healthy, great tasting, social fun food, ready in record timing with zero stress.

Both Frizzells have extensive knowledge of flavours and creation, their dedication to food which has seen the success of their food truck will reflect into the meal kits avalible to all. With the first recipe list released along with the instructional videos, the meals communicate the couples love for intense flavour and all things delicious. 

Lucky Street can be signed up to here, and includes instructional videos on how to prepare each meal. Watch the first one below.

90,000 six types of food picky kids and how to fix things

Any parent knows how children can be picky about food. More often than not, they are just being capricious. But sometimes their finickyness can become a serious problem for parents. There are many reasons why children may refuse to eat. To fix the situation, you must first determine why the baby does not like certain foods. Below are six types of food picky kids.


Previously, the child never refused to eat.He happily ate whatever his mother gave him. But at some point, the baby loses interest in any food. The child does not give up all food, but begins to eat much less than before. Should I sound the alarm?

No, these children are called regressors. In a certain period of time, the growth rate of their body slows down. They don’t need as much energy as they used to, so their appetite is noticeably reduced. The child begins to understand that he is able to independently control food intake. And refusing to eat is just one way to express your opinion.

Lovers of tasteless food

Taste buds in children work a little differently. Do not be surprised if the child does not want to eat from the table, preferring bland food. These children usually have a preference for the following foods: cereals with milk, liver, puree or bread and butter. He does not like any food with a pronounced taste. Why?

The child’s receptors have not yet fully adapted to adult food. Such children avoid any dishes with a bright taste and aroma. They don’t like salty or spicy foods.You need to accustom them to food gradually, gradually increasing the taste. Then the receptors will have time to adapt, and eating food will not become stressful for the baby.

Milk lovers

Small children are attached to breast milk. And parents do not always manage to easily accustom them to solid foods. Sometimes it happens that children refuse to eat rice or pasta, preferring to drink milk. This is not normal behavior because formula milk cannot meet the growing body’s need for minerals, vitamins and other nutrients.

These babies are strongly attached to the milk bottle. They just aren’t used to eating at the table. This behavior should not be encouraged. If a child is strongly attached to milk, there is only one way to wean him – to stop indulging in whims. Insist that your baby ate at least 3 times a day. Give solid food more often. The love of breastfeeding can delay motor development, making it difficult for babies to bite or chew on solid foods.

Too sensitive to food texture

It also happens that children complain not about the taste of food, but about its texture.Carrots are too hard for them, yogurt is thin, and cucumber is watery. The reason for this behavior also lies in the receptors on the tongue. They are much more sensitive in children than in adults. Therefore, the hardness of carrots seems to us insignificant, and the child feels discomfort because of it.

Remember that babies’ teeth, jaws and oral muscles are still in the process of forming. Therefore, it is a little harder for them to chew some food. The child cannot understand and explain the problem, so he will be capricious.To get him used to the texture, mums can experiment with the dishes. For example, vegetables can be boiled a little harder. And boil the meat so that it loses all its hardness. This will make it easier for your baby to chew.

Children who have difficulty swallowing food

A child’s digestive system develops and forms as he grows. This can make it difficult for babies to swallow food. Problems tend to arise when a child eats something new.It is difficult for him to swallow solid food, so he begins to be capricious and refuse to eat.

Problems with swallowing food – this is a reason to consult a specialist. They often appear when a child has problems with sensory and oral motor skills. This means that it may be difficult for him to move his jaw, tongue or facial muscles. Various exercises and gymnastics can be done to develop motor skills.

As a rule, problems with swallowing disappear with age. It’s just that some children develop the sensory system more slowly than others.

Picky aesthetes

There is a type of children who will not eat food if it looks ugly. They need a plate with their favorite cartoon character. Cutlets and vegetables must be in the form of animals. The usual “adult” food is in no way suitable for him.

Such whims are associated with the problem of managing your emotions. The kid does not know how to express them correctly. He may be anxious or fearful, but he will not show it to you. But he will be capricious and demand a cutlet in the shape of an animal.

To break this habit, you need to understand what emotions the child is trying to express. Do not scold him for his whims and do not refuse the baby. By doing this, you will only exacerbate the problems. Accustom him to “adult” food gradually. For example, suggest making the same animal cutlets just for dinner. Compromises and concessions are the best way to retrain your toddler.

National cuisine …. Fans of delicious food on travel – please respond !!! :))))

So my LJ duty has come to the end :)) I will definitely write my impressions, but for now I am announcing the topic of today’s meeting 🙂 whatever is Friday !!! She’s simple and sweet.Food !!!! :))))))

I think you already understood, I love this topic dearly! :))))

I was not immediately interested in the topic. She started traveling as a student, and then spending money on food was considered bad form. I spent almost everything I had with me on my first trip to Paris at the age of 20 on records! I went around all the Parisian shops with vinyl !!! On that trip, I went to a cheap supermarket every day and bought sale yogurt and bread there. Enough for me!

The next stage was business lunches.We then traveled through travel agencies, we ourselves did not know how to plan trips. And they were delighted to learn that in the same Paris you can eat a two-course dinner + homemade wine and water for 10 euros (or maybe there were still francs – I don’t remember)!

And then we grew up. And along with the experience came curiosity: what do they eat?)))

When planning travel, I save money for restaurants. Not luxurious, no! Expensive and ponty restaurants are boring. The locals are much more interesting! Before the trip, forums are read, sites with reviews are scrolled, addresses are written out.And local dishes are definitely studied.

For example, it is very important for me to try the local soup in every new place. Soups, it seems to me, have more flavor than hot dishes.


In France, you should definitely try onion soup. They don’t cook it like there!

A special soup of French Provence – fish soup. There is an expensive version called bouillabaisse (French Bouillabaisse) – this is the Marseilles ear. It is usually advised to eat it in specialty restaurants.But there is also a simpler and more democratic option, where the same principle remains: toss croutons into the soup, which are dipped in a special sauce before that 🙂

In Kalmykia, you should try Dotur soup. From giblets. Saturated!

And bean soup is popular in Mari El! And nothing beats the opportunity to eat it in a country house, from the hands of the hostess :))))

Tartare has always been the worst snack for me. As I heard that in France, meat is served raw, and even kneaded with an egg – I felt sick.But curiosity won out :)) Now this is one of my favorite dishes 🙂

And here’s another subject of my curiosity. Francesinha is the national Portuguese dish, a hell of a mix of bread, cheese, meat and delicious sauce. Calorie VERY! But how not to try, even if after that you don’t eat a single piece 🙂

And there are just dishes that you just think of – and you don’t want to try anything anymore :)) This is pasta and pizza in Italy!)

Hot is more difficult.If I had my way, I would order pasta everywhere :)) But you have to try everything))

Therefore, in Lyon it will be sausages with mashed potatoes and a baked apple in a local bushon …

In Scotland – haggis. The most famous Scottish national dish is lamb giblets (heart, liver and lungs), chopped with onions, oatmeal, bacon, spices and salt and boiled in a lamb stomach. Part of the dish is mashed potatoes, part is pumpkin.

In Israel – a huge rock perch…

In Portugal – freshly caught flounder …

in Austria – pork ribs …

And in Karelia – in general, a real bear meat! 🙂

A separate topic is serving dishes. In France, this is always a work of art :))

And in Portugal they can set fire to sausage :))

Well, and a couple of words about desserts 🙂 I’m indifferent to sweets, but, of course, during the trip everyone is changing :))

I remember England, I think about scones 🙂

There is a wonderful dessert in France, made up of small desserts.This dish is always offered. Very comfortably.

Spain – churros with chocolate …

So, that’s it, it’s time to slow down :)) And then I can take a long time 🙂 I can also talk about local wines and pubs :))) But this – somehow later 🙂

This time I will not have a blog review. Many travel bloggers I know write about delicious food, and I have already mentioned many. So let just delicious photos remain)

And my survey.

Do you spend money on local cuisine when traveling?

Favorite food will tell about character: romantics love seafood, and cheese lovers – the most reliable people | Proper nutrition | Health

We do not perceive the basic information about food by our organs of taste.The language is able to identify only 4 main shades: salty, sour, bitter and sweet. We get more complete information about food thanks to all the other senses.

Devour with eyes

80% of the perception of food depends on the sense of smell. Not so significant, but still a noticeable role is played by sight – how can you not remember the expression “devour with your eyes”. Hearing also makes its contribution: carrots, juicy celery stalks and chips crunch so deliciously on the teeth that it is a pleasure to grind them.With the help of touch, we not only determine the sharpness and consistency of food, deciding whether it is liquid, solid, sticky or astringent, but we also get sensual pleasure from food. What a pleasure it is to feel the elastic, smooth body of squid in your mouth, to immerse your tongue in the stirring pulp of persimmon, to dig your teeth into a juicy barbecue, to tightly wrap your lips around the delicate flesh of a banana!

It turns out that 5 senses, or even all 6, “work” on the perception of the taste of one dish. Whatever one may say, the high cost of the product also gives it an additional, “expensive” taste.In addition, each of us can confirm that even ordinary scrambled eggs, cooked with love by a loved one, seems much tastier.

Implicit truths

Loss of taste can be corrected by … the taste of certain foods. The weakening of taste sensations can be caused by a lack of zinc, as this mineral affects the functioning of the senses. Its deficiency is manifested by severe fatigue, frequent colds, impaired attention and decreased sex drive. You can make up for your zinc deficiency by limiting alcohol and eating more red meat.It is also present in liver, cheese, shrimp, legumes, nuts, pumpkin seeds, bananas, grapes, oranges, pears, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms. The absolute champion in this useful trace element is oysters.

Gourmets are not necessarily of noble birth. Taste lends itself to development no worse than, say, hearing, especially if you do this from early childhood. It is not for nothing that the French, the world legislators of high gastronomic fashion, regularly hold the “Week of Taste” in their country.These days 550 restaurants offer a menu at low prices – especially for students and schoolchildren. In general, a lot of different gastronomic events take place in France: in the last week of October, people have fun at the spice festival. On the third Saturday of the month, the French gorge themselves on chestnuts and mushrooms. There are also cider days, a fish festival …

Gluttons and gourmets are different people. In church literature, gluttony is called gluttony, and gourmand is called guttural fury. This difference, however, does not prevent the recognition of both sins as mortal.

Most of the famous gourmets were the most interesting and intelligent people and, of course, excellent cooks. For example, Rossini personally cooked pasta and salad with truffles for his guests, and Dumas the father cooked lamb cutlets. By the way, the culinary theme inspired the famous novelist to create a cookbook.

Many people believe that gastronomic gourmet is akin to fine literary taste. Just remember Pushkin’s mouth-watering lines about “live Limburgskiy cheese and golden pineapple”, not to mention the detailed and naturalistic descriptions of Gogol’s abundant meals.But our famous fabulist Krylov suffered from banal gluttony, which had nothing to do with true gourmand. Contemporaries noted his constant concern about what to fill his stomach.

Taste preferences speak about a person’s character. Moreover, taste is able to control our behavior. Perhaps Alice was the first to guess this from Carroll’s famous book, who claimed that “they sour from vinegar and upset from mustard.” Today, many European psychologists think about the same, including our compatriot psychologist A.Makarov, who devoted his thesis to the relationship between mental health and diet.

According to Makarov’s classification, the most reliable people are cheese lovers. They are gentle, compliant and altruistic.

Diligent and diligent – choose the doctor’s sausage.

Those who prefer the taste of raw vegetables to all others are squeamish and give in to difficulties. However, kale leaf fans are not one of them. The juice of fresh cabbage was drunk by the Roman soldiers for courage, as this vegetable increases determination and gives strength.

Spicy food is for passionate natures, and sour food is for monsters and murderers. She was adored by tyrants of all times: Ivan the Terrible, Peter I, Stalin.

Fatty cakes with cream, chocolate, condensed milk and ice cream are usually loaded with disliked children and adults.

And addiction to caramels, candied fruits and jam reveals an infantile nature, slightly capricious, but generally sweet.

Romantics and vagabonds love smoked products and seafood.

A sign of spiritual breadth and generosity is the love of tomatoes.

Fresh cucumbers – food for sensitive persons.

Fried potatoes like affectionate and sincere.

Lard, bacon – respected by jealous people.

And pizza – people are hardy and healthy aggressive.

It is known that the taste of food is able to tune in a certain way. For example, rose jam, artichokes, celery root, chocolate and other products – aphrodisiacs, encourage lovemaking as well as Viagra. A. Makarov believes that taste is capable of more.Beets and milk improve mood, cabbage and cabbage soup add determination, apricot invigorates, peach relieves irritability. According to this theory, achieving perfection is not so difficult.

90,000 Losing and distorting aromas is a fear of wine and food lovers: wine_street – LiveJournal

One of the Coronavirus nightmares is the loss of smell and taste! Such consequences can appear due to other diseases such as influenza, rhinovirus and adenovirus.However, it is precisely because of the Coronavirus that this problem has become so acute. In this article we will tell you how to get rid of the disease.

Why is the gray wolf so terrible?

A sommelier who does not smell is a parachutist without a parachute. So the loss of aroma and taste is destructive for such professions, sommeliers are often called noses! But just for wine lovers, this ailment is also akin to a disaster. After all, if you cannot enjoy wine, then you are losing one of the pleasures in your life.What can we say about delicious food!

Another funny thing that is happening now is the distortion of aromas, it is also called “parosmia”. Very often after Coronavirus, people begin to perceive smells differently. For example, passion fruit, in one such case, began to smell like rubber and latex.

What to do?

For some, the sense of smell returns quickly: after a few days or a week. And he does not return to someone at all. There are a couple of exercises to help solve this problem:

  • Introduce fragrances.For example, start slicing a lemon in your imagination and remember how it smells. Or imagine breathing in a smell from the sea, so salty and sea. What does coffee, chocolate, books smell like, after all? This exercise should be done daily, and then move on to the second point.
  • From theory to practice. Try to sniff different food, some objects every day.

One of our colleagues was able to regain her smells six months later, thanks to the fact that she began to practice on strong aromas: alcohol, perfume, coffee, garlic, spices, citrus fruits.But many of her aromas are still distorted: for example, all the nasty smells (sewage, something rotten) have become one nasty smell, and completely new, unknown before. Perhaps due to the fact that she did not know about the first point, it has not yet been possible to restore the sense of smell completely.

People come up with different ways to bring back smells, and each one works something different. But in the article we have given the most effective method that scientists and doctors advise.

Pskov | Experts prove that coffee drinkers taste food more sharply

Danish scientists have found that a person who drinks coffee changes taste sensations – sweet food seems sweeter, and bitter – less bitter.The results of the study are published in the journal Foods.

The addiction of coffee lovers to dark bitter chocolate has now received a scientific explanation.

Researchers at Aarhus University Alexander Wieck Fjældstad and Henrique Fernandes conducted a chemosensory sensitivity analysis of coffee drinkers to find out if the drink affects taste and olfactory sensitivity.

During the study, 156 volunteers tested their sense of smell and taste before and after drinking coffee. It turned out that the perception of coffee smells is not affected, but it has a peculiar effect on the taste.

People after drinking coffee became more sensitive to sweetness and less sensitive to bitterness” , Fjeldstad said in a university press release.

To eliminate the influence of caffeine, the researchers repeated the experiment with coffee without it, and the results were exactly the same.

Some bitter substances in coffee probably create this effect,” says the scientist. – This may explain why people like dark chocolate with coffee. Its taste becomes much softer because the bitterness is muted and the sweetness is increased . ”

The authors note that the effect of coffee on taste sensations in all volunteers was short-term and was recorded only when they drank it.

According to scientists, the results of the study not only provide a better understanding of how taste buds work, but can also have real practical value.Humans have different chemosensory sensitivities, and the challenge for food manufacturers is to find universal fragrances that everyone perceives the same way.

New foods are usually tested separately from others, and participants generally refrain from eating any food until taste testing begins. But in life, the authors note, this is not at all the case – people use products in combination, so the taste should be tested in the same way.

It is known that our senses influence each other, but it is surprising that the sensations of sweetness and bitterness are so easily influenced.Additional research in this area may have implications for regulating the use of sugar and sweeteners as food additives , ”explains Fjeldstad.

In particular, the authors believe, these data can serve to deliberately reduce sugar and calories in food, which will be beneficial for those who are overweight and diabetes.

Earlier, the CDI said, which drinks improve brain function.
