The term Flavour Lab brings with it images of test tubes and Bunsen burners, but in German, Flavour Lab is translated to Geschmackslabor. For the ultimate in custom dining experiences, Geschmackslabor, an ultra-hip new restaurant in Bremerhaven, Germany, is the place where the chef is not the king, you are.
The concept is truly innovative; your order your menu selection and when it's brought to your table, you are presented with an inventive selection of flavoured oils with which to enhance your meal. There are 20 olive oil based flavourings, varying from coconut and coffee to papaya and rosemary. Plenty of fresh bread is also served to taste test the oils before you make your final decision.
As gourmet cooking becomes more popular at home, diners have more savoir-faire than ever before, and this kind of custom dining intensifications are bound to be a growing trend.
