How Taste Changed the World with Adam Liaw – an Audible Original Podcast

Join Australian cook Adam Liaw as he investigates the science and history of our five tastes – sweet, bitter, salty, sour and umami. Our taste for salt is vital to our biology but it also turned food into a commodity underpinning global economics for thousands of years. Sweetness that once guided our evolutionary forebears to energy-rich fruits is now used to sell us soft drinks. Deliciously immersive, this epic new Audible Original unravels how taste has shaped our food, our society and our planet.

Written and hosted by Adam Liaw and featuring Yotam Ottolenghi, Dan Barber, Kenji Lopez-Alt, Fuschia Dunlop & Tetsuya Wakuda
