Hosted at Sanctuary, Adelaide Zoo in partnership with Adelaide Hills Wine Region, the event promises to be a blindingly unique culinary experience.
Following pre-dinner drinks and canapés, the lights will be dimmed; guests will be seated and asked to wear blindfolds as they enjoy a five course degustation menu with matching Adelaide Hills wines – all in the dark.
Judy Curran, Can:Do Group Chief Executive said, “‘Dining in the dark’ events are increasing in popularity around the world and we’re very excited to host our own Dinner in the Dark here in Adelaide. We hope our guests will develop an understanding of the challenges faced every day by people who are blind or vision impaired, all whilst enjoying a sensational evening of fantastic food and wine.”
Adelaide Hills Wine Region Chief Executive Robin Shaw said, “Dinner in the Dark presents a unique opportunity for foodies and wine enthusiasts to re-evaluate the notions of taste and smell as they suppress their sense of sight for the evening. Whilst our guests will be forgiven for forgetting their usual table manners, we have no doubt that they’ll remember this unique experience!”
