Imagine a world in which we do not only look for cooking inspiration, but also for eating inspiration. Just to make sure that each meal is enjoyable in a very different way. 

Secret Seasoning aims to unlock your creativity and to enable you to discover your personal & unique relationship with food!

What is secret seasoning?

Just like normal herbs, salts and spices, secret seasoning comprises different ingredients that you can add to a meal. Only instead of changing the flavour of the food, secret seasoning will change the flavour of the whole experience! The ingredients turn eating into increasingly playful, fun and memorable events.

Discover the 8 ingredients:

Where does secret seasoning come from?

Elise started an artistic, selfexploratory practice with food, early in 2020. She shared her journey and findings on Instagram. With this project she questions society’s established eating behaviour and food culture. 

We think so much about WHAT to eat, but almost never about HOW we’ll ingest the food. And let that be exactly what Elise started playing with..

Currently Secret Seasoning comprises a database of over 160 eating experiments, categorised into 8 playful eating ingredients. Elise categorised the database in close collaboration with Ferran Altarriba. The playful eating ingredients are 8 forms of playful eating that they both found interesting and inspirational.
