Not only is donning a blindfold to a meal a cause for a giggle or two, but it’s also thought that it can actually elevate the dining experience by heightening the other senses. At Dining in the Dark, one sense is taken away to give way to others, allowing the intensity of the delicious food’s tantalising flavours and inviting scents to be greater than ever before.
This season, Capriccio Osteria and Beast & Co. will be serving up mouth-watering crowd-pleasers that foodies are sure to enjoy. The impressive three-course menu will also be a complete surprise, keeping intrepid foodies on their toes as they guess what type of delicious dish will be on its way to their table next.
What to expect at Dining in the Dark?
If the age-old saying that “we first eat with our eyes” is true, then Dining in the Dark poses the very important question: what happens when our sight is no longer in the equation? The theory is that our other senses come to the forefront, making the food’s wonderful flavours taste stronger and the mouth-watering scents all the more powerful.
While submerged in complete darkness, diners will set out on a gastronomical adventure with just their taste buds and sense of smell as their closest allies. Masterful chefs will be putting together delectable dishes from a surprise three-course menu, and adventurous gastronomes are welcome to choose from a vegetarian, meat and seafood menu.
Nobody said eating while blindfolded was easy, but that’s all part of the fun. You can try to guide your fork or spoon to your mouth in the pitch black or you can try to use your hands to pick out the ingredients, too. Get creative, have a laugh and just remember – no peeking!
Where is Dining in the Dark?
Dining in the Dark will be taking place inside two of Sydney’s finest restaurants.
