Creating the drinks

Operation Deep Freeze has begun in the Borough of Greenwich where artists, Lisa Cheung, Rebecca Beinart and Ella Perkins have run sessions in taste exploration with the pupils.

Starting with blind tastings and combining flavours the pupils began to describe the tastes and their responses to them as a way of thinking how they would create a new product. They then went on to produce a flavoured water drink which they named and created a short fun advertisement for.

These early workshops iintroduced the children to the concepts behind the project and also got them to think about where the food flavourings come from; which flavourings could they grow themselves? what language can we use when describing food and flavour?

The explorations now continue in preparation for the launch of the Operation Deep Freeze unit.
