A gastronimical experience that awakens and teases your tastebuds is coming to Perth. Step into a dark space illuminated only by candlelight. The only other allies you’ll have at Dining in the Dark will be your sense of taste, touch, and smell. While tasting plates of decadent flavours and textural contrasts, you’ll find yourself learning to communicate with your company and to appreciate food more.
Having proved extremely popular among diners in Perth, the event returns to The Stables. This adventurous experience calls on epicureans to distinguish between flavours and test their resolve when vision is no longer the dominant sense. If you are a foodie and don’t mind being blindfolded, don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind meal in Perth.
What to expect at Dining in the Dark?
This special event promises to elevate your meal to a whole new level with dimmed surroundings leaving just you, your taste buds and your sense of smell to enjoy a three-course meal. You’ll be led into the barely-lit space by a guide who’ll be on hand to make sure you don’t bump into anything on your way in, and blindfolds will be provided to all guests, which will help to heighten your senses. They also help stop you from peeking at what’s on your plate and ruining the experience.
Speaking of what’s on the plate, the courses will be shrouded in mystery (and darkness, of course). However, we can reveal that you’ll be able to select between a meat, seafood or vegan set menu prior to the event to suit your culinary tastes. Whilst the specific dishes will be kept secret, we’re told that you can expect a variety of flavourful combinations, intriguing textures, and carefully chosen ingredients to spark your remaining senses.
Let go of any inhibitions and delve into an evening of surprises and unexpected sounds and smells. Dining in the Dark is the perfect icebreaker for a romantic date, a great plan to do with some friends, and definitely brings out the gourmand in guests.
