Lexus is giving visitors to this week’s BBC Good Food Show a chance to pick up skills and find out more about clever culinary taste and texture combinations in a daily programme of Discover and Learn with Lexus workshops.
In its third year as the show’s lead sponsor, Lexus is helping host three different sessions, taking place twice each day during the event’s run at the NEC in Birmingham from 16 to 19 June. Experts will be sharing tips and know-how and leading practical, hands-on activities.
TV chef Marcus Bean, from the Brompton Cookery School, will host a Cupcake Decorating class, helping people master the essential techniques for creating beautiful and unusual cakes.
More hands-on opportunities will be provided by the team from Yo! Sushi in a masterclass on how to make a tasty sushi lunch – everyone attending will be able to take away the snacks they create.
The Five Senses Tasting Experience will show how food can stimulate all the senses and show how the impact of dishes can be enhanced by the way they look, how they feel on the tongue and even the sound they make. The session, which includes blind tastings, will be led by Flavour Sense Nation.
Lexus is no stranger to the multi-sensory qualities of cookery, having engaged the Michelin-starred chef Yoji Tokuyoshi to create dishes as part of its An Encounter with Anticipation installation at this year’s Milan Design Week.
The Good Food Show will also feature a display of current Lexus models, including the recently launch RC coupe, NX crossover, RX luxury SUV and IS and GS executive sports saloons.
Tickets for the Discover and Learn workshops can be booked on-line at the BBC Good Food Show website here or can be purchased at the show, on the day.
