A Natural Enhancer 

With its royal status and rich history, Indian sandalwood (Santalum album) has long been a revered ingredient offering a myriad of fragrance and wellness benefits. However, it has now found a renewed place in flavour offering a range of unique benefits. Sandalwood can add longevity of flavour to the tastebuds, whilst also enhancing flavours and providing greater complexity. You will find it in modern creations from Michelin Star chef, Heston Blumenthal’s famous Sandalwood Negroni to Sainsbury’s iconic hot cross buns and Wilderton’s unique gin blends.

A Modern Take on
a Historic Ingredient 

Indian cuisine has long recognised the importance of smell in the way we taste our food. Today, chefs throughout the world are pushing the limits of what’s possible in dining and becoming more invested in the emerging field of “neurogastronomy” - the notion that what is appreciated in the mouth is created by the brain. Chefs recognise that flavour is more powerful than taste because it involves all the senses and can conjure up memory, nostalgia and different moods.
