Eating without tasting is like looking without seeing


Appetite Research Centre

Appetite is the research arm of Restaurant Nouri investigating material culture with a focus on food.

We document, archive, and reinterpret patterns of migration, trade, war, and exchange across time and geography. We call this approach crossroads thinking. Our multi-disciplinary team and advisory board includes chefs, anthropologists, historians, journalists, artists, and designers.

Appetite was founded in 2018, 12 months after Restaurant Nouri opened.  It is based in Singapore alongside the restaurant.
