Everyone has their own preference when it comes to texture.

However, to the vast majority of us, it’s an important factor in the enjoyment of food. Textures are often key to making a successful dish. In our classes, we will talk about how to easily get different textures into a dish to make it more enjoyable.

This means than some people can only eat smooth textured food. However, this can become very boring and make eating a chore. There are ways to overcome this using different variations of very soft textured foods. Texture is also important for people suffering a complete loss of taste, texture can add a new dimension to what they experience in their mouth.
