Dining in the Dark - your next mysterious culinary experience

BLINDFOLDED DINNER

The experience

Blindfolds at the dinner table? Yep, we’re doing away with etiquette and replacing manners with heightened senses. This foodie experience takes you on a complex culinary journey without the sense of sight. Completely blindfolded, you and your guests will be guided through the meal by your four other senses, now heightened like a superhero. With these new superpower senses, you’ll pick up aromas, flavours, and textures you’ve never experienced before!

How It Flows

There’ll be more than just blindfolding going on – with sight now out of the way, we’ll be able to see who has the keenest senses in your group. We’ve made this food experience interactive and engaging, so there’s lots of fun to be had with every course that’s brought out! As you sample gourmet cuisine from around the world, you’ll have the chance to write down what you think each dish is, its origins, and its ingredients. After that, you can whip off your blindfold and feast your eyes on the tasty treats, seeing how accurate your guesses were.
