The creator of Le Whif, a lipstick-sized inhaler, has come out with a new product, one that can vaporize almost any food imaginable. The bigger machine, called “Le Whaf,” looks like a giant fishbowl and can easily transform any beverage into a low-calorie vapor, which one breathes in. Special packages of “essences” can be purchased for other foods, like lemon tart or tomato soup.
The machine was created by David Edwards, who is an aerosol scientist and professor at Harvard University. “It’s great fun,” says Edwards. “It’s an amuse bouche, a conversation starter. It’s a way of savoring the flavor of alcoholic drinks without getting drunk. Most of all, it’s a way for foodies to savor flavors.”
