Gingerline Presents The Institute Of Flavourology

The Story Of Flavourology

Flavourology, founded by Sir Lionel, is the philosophical belief that the ability to experience and discern flavour is the very pinnacle of human evolution – the highest mental art. Sight, sound, smell and touch exist only to serve the fabulous faculty of taste. Taste can influence everything from one’s health to one’s dreams, and of course, the quality of one’s dinner. 

The Institute itself was founded in 1901 by Sir Lionel Stirling Grey to advance the study of Flavourology. A strict discipline of flavour experimentation and dogmatic addiction to research the newest and most delicious dining experiences. Now members of the Institute dedicate their time to creating these taste-centric experiences for private and bespoke events.

Food & Drink Service

Our dedicated culinary researchers have created a suite of highly creative, interactive menus based around exciting dining concepts which can flex to fit a variety of formats such as canapés, buffets, sit-down experiences, matched wine and interactive cocktails. Remember this is not your bog standard catering service; it is a food experience strictly for the dining different. Our innovative culinary creations are a closely guarded secret, but will be shared with the client prior to confirming the event.

The 3 core food concepts the Institute designs to make available to the public, are those inspired by its own facilities. Hungry yet? Oh do read on…

Laboratory Flasks

The Laboratory

Visits to The Institute itself are strictly by invitation only. As well as the library and study rooms, a four-storey underground laboratory research facility exists beneath the main building. Here, a dedicated team of molecular gastronomers deconstruct, reconstruct, centrifuge, accelerate and detonate relishes and recipes to create the ultimate flavour fusions.

Bucket and Spade

The Garden

Visits to The Institute itself are strictly by invitation only. The grounds are rumoured to be expansive and contain a twenty-five-hectare kitchen garden, complete with greenhouse and an assortment of garden ornaments. Here, sprinklings of garden gnomes work tirelessly to fuse a British woodland and gardens experience with creative culinary experimentation.

Lollipops

The Circus School

Visits to The Institute itself are strictly by invitation only. Perhaps unexpectedly, it homes an extensive circus school for the training of waif and strays in the acrobatic arts. (A pastime of Sir Lionel’s which is, out of respect for his memory, now run as a charity). Here, the troupe juggle, cartwheel and trapeze their way to bringing the hedonism and playfulness of the circus to the table.
