Virtual Chef

Cooking sessions and showings are presented in the VR space

Trend - One of the more unlikely applications of VR is brands in the food space using it for lessons and food-related experiences, with everything from live-cooking sessions to visual sampling shows for customers to take part in. The use of VR in the food space allows for brands to engage customers that may be too distant to tangibly test their offerings, and provides a uniquely immersive experience for curious consumers.

Insight - For "foodie" consumers, testing out new cuisines and dishes isn't simply about ingredients and flavor, but about the entire consumption experience as a whole–everything from smell to sight is involved in the process. Thus, immersive forms of food and beverage "consumption" appeal to consumers who are drawn to more distinct methods of engaging with their preferred foodie experiences.
Workshop Question - How could your brand incorporate VR into its campaigns?
