LESSON #1- PART 1: Activating TASTE

In Lesson #1 we discussed the importance of activating all five senses during an experience. Those five senses were seeing, smelling, hearing, tasting, and feeling (touch).
This week we are going to focus on TASTING.

Though taste is the weakest of our five senses, I think we can all agree that we find food and drinks at a party to be one of the most important parts. It is a crucial step in the party planning process to never overlook because we should know that our guests expect it; it is a standard.

Your brain is the Mother goose; your fives senses the little geese. In other words, according to Kids Health, none of our senses would be useful without the processing that occurs in the brain. Taste buds can recognize four basic kinds of tastes: sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. The salty/sweet taste buds are located near the front of your tongue; the sour taste buds line the sides of your tongue; and the bitter taste buds are found at the very back of your tongue. Taste buds play an important role in helping you enjoy food. When you ENJOY the food or drinks you are digesting this sends a positive message to your brain right?
