If you’ve ever been to Hershey Park, Universal Studios Parks, or any of the Disney World/Land, you’re probably familiar with the concept of the 4D Movie.
4D movies taking 3D a step further by enabling audience members to utilize all their senses. If there is a rainy scene, a spray of water will fall on you. If there are snakes on the ground, the floor beneath you will shift and slither. If someone is barbequing in the background, the smell of burgers will make your mouth water. Some theaters will even give a blast of cold air or a gust of wind to make even minor details feel more authentic.

Every year, culinary masters from all over the globe follow their dreams and find themselves in this smoggy metropolis, ready to tease and tantalize our pallets with their wares. This relentless cycle of new talent presents dazzling new trends, and we're not just talking about beet salad and the rise of the Brussel’s sprout (be warned: celery will be back).
