Food.Fun.Stuff: Flavor Trip & Cookies

[ 0 ] November 10, 2009 |

>Flavor, Flave- Flavor Tripping hits the District December 11. Flavor Tripping is a monthly event that allows guest to taste the West African berry called synsepalum dulcificum, or “trippy fruit.” (*Translation: Trippy fruit temporarily re-wires taste receptors on the tongue, transforming acidic and sour food into sweet and enjoyable treats.) So after you take your “trip” here’s what happens next:

Guests will be ushered into the Tripeteria, a cafeteria with an all-you-can-trip buffet full of all the sour nasties usually consumed in moderation. In this conceptual, experimental flavor laboratory, lemon wedges become lollipops, hot sauce becomes donut glaze, goat cheese becomes cheesecake, bottom-shelf tequila becomes Patron, and a Guinness Beer becomes a chocolate milkshake.The Money: Get your tickets in advance here for $12, $15 @ the door (*Advance might be better b/c the tickets are limited)The Where: EFN Lounge (formerly known as Be Bar) at 1318 9th St N.W., Washington DC 20001 Between N and O Streets N.W., across from the Washington Convention Center.The When: Friday, December 11, 2009, 7 pm-9 pm>Tim Tam’s are back in the U.S. They have a new flavor (*Classic Dark) and they are available @ Target.
