Members from At-Bristol and the NBU have joined in a collaborative effort to create a fully immersive and interactive food experience. Snack like never before in a guided tour of your brain & stomach as we take a unique peek at the psychology of appetite.

* Get spicy with The Bart Ingredient Company in some tongue-tingling taste tests in the test Kitchen
