Reflections on Anosmic Chef in the New Year

Anosmic Chef was first started when a group of anosmics came together on Facebook wanting to share recipes with each other. By not being able to identify, distinguish, or remember flavors — without flavor perception — food often feels like a chore. We thought exchanging recipes would not only give each other more ideas for meals but also allow us to give feedback on how much we were able to enjoy the recipe (and for our olfie caregivers, how much they were able to enjoy it as well!). One thought was that perhaps by trying different foods, we would know what flavors we could or couldn’t perceive on an individual level.
