Hear the taste
– an artificial intelligence
Did you know that the background sound inside an airplane changes the way your food tastes? For example: sweet and salty tastes are reduced while the umami taste is enhanced.
Together with our signature chef Steven Liu, we created Nordic soundscapes to enhance his Finnair dishes. And now, we wanted to bring the sound of the Nordics to every dish in the world with an artificial intelligence mini program. The program uses advanced image recognition software that scans any food picture and offers you a customized soundtrack for you to enjoy.
Watch the video where Steven lets people test the mini program.
Hear the taste
Finnair signature chef Steven Liu went on a trip around the Nordic countries to record northern sounds that enhance his culinary vision. Together, we created a scientific soundscape for each of Steven’s dishes, and you can find them on selected flights from China to Europe in 2018.

New Economy Class Meal
In this meal, Nordic meat makes friends with strong Asian sauces. The soundscape was created to highlight sweet tastes and subtly bring salty tastes to the foreground.
Sweet corn and chicken soup with coriander oil
Our chicken soup warms the heart and the soul. It is based on three elements: sweetness, smoothness and freshness. The soundscape features bubbling sounds that boost freshness and harmonic frequencies that emphasise sweet tastes.
Pot braised pork meatballs
At the heart of this dish, you will find a versatile combination of tastes. There’s salty pork, umami from the mushrooms and a peanut-like sauce that creates a rich wholeness. The soundscape takes you to a Nordic forest where natural sounds balance out the umami taste and help you discover all the complex flavours.

– a culinary adventure of taste and sound
It’s a scientific fact that sound affects how food tastes. Finnair signature chef Steven Liu has created three signature menu items for us, and to celebrate his East-meets-West menu, we’ve added a unique Nordic element that compliments the eating experience.
