This article presents the main issues on gustatory aesthetics, a field which appeared recently in the academic programms. As shown in the first part, gustatory aesthetics is about the non-metaphorical use of taste. The second part is dedicated to issues that define this discipline at the present time: its involvement with gustatory practices; the creation of a radically expanding space for disinterestedness, creativity, freedom and imagination; the artified strategies for gustatory embodied meanings; the radical demand for narrative; the development of research in a medialab spirit. The article ends with the consideration of this new field as a privileged ground for revolutionizing old academic syllabuses.
