Accordingly, “Delaying the utilisation of the buses for the sole reason of inauguration is unacceptable, party president Uddhav Thackeray is set to attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dinner for NDA allies on Monday in New Delhi.Sources in the Sena said BJP president Amit Shah called up Thackeray on Thursday requesting him to attend the dinner This will be the first time Uddhav meets Modi and Shah in Delhi after attending the Union cabinet’s swearing-in ceremony in May 2014 said sources in the Sena Arvind Sawant Shiv Sena MP and spokesperson confirmed that the party president would attend the NDA dinner in Delhi on April 10 However it is not yet clear whether the Sena leader in the Lok Sabha would accompany Uddhav “We have been given to understand that the dinner is for party chiefs of alliance partners So only Uddhav ji will attend it” said a Sena leader adding that if it was so decided later on the Sena’s group leader in the Lok Sabha may join Thackeray Sources said the PM is also expected to seek the BJP allies’ views on the presidential election in July The BJP needs the Sena’s support to gets its candidate into the Rashtrapati Bhavan said a Sena leader Uddhav’s move of attending Modi’s dinner assumes political significance in the light of the recent bitterness between the two allies over various issues including the ban on Gaikwad Senior Sena leader and MP Sanjay Raut had even threatened to boycott the dinner if the Osmanabad MP was not allowed to fly The BJP’s dinner invite is also seen as an attempt to pacify the Sena which has joined the opposition parties

foods through a sequence of chemical reactions between amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and reducing sugars (any carbohydrate that can be oxidized) in what’s collectively known as the Maillard reaction (Photo: Thinkstock) Through a thick fog of jet lag I raced to Seven Seeds Coffee Roasters (in Melbourne) one of the top roasters in one of the undisputed coffee capitals of the world—a logical place to try to understand the extensive work involved in getting coffee from farmers’ hands to mine I got lost and arrived late (because I hadn’t had my coffee) “In the cup coffee will tell you everything” announced Aaron Wood former head roaster for Seven Seeds… Aaron started his journey in coffee at age 26 bagging beans at Atomic Coffee Roasters in New Zealand “I’d get to work really early” he later told me “do all my bagging and then clock off and learn from the guy who had roasted in the UK” Eight years later Aaron was overseeing the roasting of almost 1400 kilograms of coffee a week “I love coffee because it’s for the people It’s social You wouldn’t go out for a bar of chocolate would you” (Thank God I thought because I really hate sharing chocolate) “People drink wine to get out of their day and get into their night Coffee brings you into your day”… The roasting Aaron oversaw at Seven Seeds is a lot like fermentation— it’s alchemic: a process that transforms the subtle aromas and vegetative tastes of green coffee seeds into the shiny dark beans we crave Roasting draws out flavours and changes the colour of foods through a sequence of chemical reactions between amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and reducing sugars (any carbohydrate that can be oxidized) in what’s collectively known as the Maillard reaction This effect—also referred to as “nonenzymatic browning”—is a major contributor to the mouthwatering appeal of crusty bread seared steak and golden-brown French fries as well as the rich flavours and colours we find in coffee chocolate and beer… The greatest sensory impact of roasting to the end drinker is in taste but for the roaster one of the most influential senses is sound Aaron Kc and their roasting colleagues not only monitor the temperature and colour of roasting beans they listen for a series of tiny pops three-quarters of the way through the roast These pops which sound a lot like corn popping are known as “first crack” It’s the sound of the release of steam and gases that build up in the cell walls of beans when they reach a temperature of about 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit) The beans start to lose weight and moisture Kc explains but puff up as they expand After about two minutes the beans quiet down until the temperature climbs to 446 degrees setting off another chorus of sounds The second crack is subtle and sounds more like a bowl of Rice Krispies cereal After that crack roasting ceases; the beans are so hot they can potentially catch fire and burn As I sat quietly with Kc and listened for crackles and pops the intimacy of sound became clear “What we call ‘sound’ is really an onrushing cresting and withdrawing wave of air molecules that begins with the movement of any object however large or small and ripples out in all directions” Diane Ackerman explains in a natural History of the Senses “First something has to move—a tractor a cricket’s wings—that shakes the air molecules all around it then the molecules next to them begin trembling too and so on”… An ocean soundtrack can make a fish dinner seem fishier (Photo: foodiesfeedcom) I didn’t know then as I listened to the pop pop pop of roasting coffee beans that sound affects the way we taste coffee But it does Although it’s often overlooked in flavour research sound also informs our sensory experience of foods What we hear while chewing slurping even tearing open a package shapes our perception of texture and works with other senses to build our expectations and actual experience of flavour It is so nuanced that “96 percent of people can tell the difference between hot and cold just by the sound” Whether we recognise it or not our experience of flavour is a product of our environment A 2010 study by researchers Charles Spence and Maya Shankar at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom asserts “What we hear influences everything from what we choose to eat to the total amount and the rate at which we eat it and to the perceived pleasantness identity and flavour characteristics of the food in our mouths” In a follow-up study called “Eating with our Ears” Spence calls sound the “forgotten flavour sense” and explains “What we hear can help us to identify the textural properties of what we or for that matter anyone else happens to be eating: How crispy crunchy or crackly a food is or even how carbonated the cava” Our sensory experience of food can change up to 60 percent depending on the sounds in the room such as an ocean soundtrack that makes a fish dinner seem fishier Researchers at Cornell University found through their investigation of airline passengers’ in-flight beverage preferences that noisy environments impede our perceptions of sweet tastes but “dramatically increased” our perceptions of umami or savory tastes (such as tomato juice) Increased noise also causes people to rate foods as “less salty less sweet yet crunchier” Crunchiness convinces us that some foods are fresher and possibly more interesting leading researchers to suggest that tweaking the sounds of food might be a way to encourage elderly people to eat when their senses of taste and smell diminish High-pitched sounds have been shown to make foods taste sweeter while low-pitched sounds increase bitterness Sounds of crackling bacon made one bacon-and-egg ice cream whipped up by researchers taste more like bacon while sounds of farmyard chickens dialed down perceptions of pigginess in that very same dish Hearing of course isn’t the same as listening In the same way we’re always breathing we’re always hearing But when we pay attention it’s transformed: breathing into inhaling hearing into listening Drinking coffee is what many of us do every day but tasting coffee—paying attention to all that is revealed through our senses—is something else another form of listening entirely Excerpted from Bread Wine And Chocolate: The Slow Loss of Foods We Love
