Abstract

The aim of the study was to explore consumers’ attitude toward molecular cuisine, specifically the sensory evaluation of these dishes. The experiment was performed in a laboratory among 10 panelists and 150 consumers to compare a sensory profile of molecular courses to their traditional versions.
Sensory profile of traditional dishes had a significantly higher, or comparable intensity in sensory attributes than molecular version and was preferred by consumers (p≤0.05). The results indicate positive attitude of consumers to modernist dishes and their moderately high sensory-experience ratings. Most of them showed willingness to try other molecular dishes in the future.
