Rumination on Mastication




What if you could explore the complexity of the mouth through eating?

Join us for a spot of ‘Rumination on Mastication.’
Chew the cud with oral cavity experts over a few tasty morsels, to get the juices flowing. If you think saliva is unpalatable, think again, as we will dive into the microcosm of the mouth; delving beneath your pearly whites to explore the ecosystem, landscape and inhabitants of this wet world.

Trust us, you’ll find the sensational stories of the mouth hard to swallow!

This pop-up restaurant allowed guests to sit down and ‘break bread’ with experts, indulging in one of the vital performances of the body, chewing, digesting and exploring themes and subjects that have been delved into during Science Gallery London's Mouthy season.
