Loosely based on the successful European concept of eating a complete meal in total darkness, The Culinary Dude, Chef Scott Davis has substituted the darkness for a simple blindfold. This experience will challenge your senses, taking your nose and taste buds to places that they have never been, not to mention your mind.

 

We are able to cater the meal to meet any special dietary needs as long as we have advanced notice. Finally, if during the meal you have any questions, have to use the rest room or have any difficulties, just simply raise your hand and one of our escorts will be there to accommodate whatever is needed.

 

We request that you arrive 5 to 10 prior as we will only be offering one seating. Reservations are necessary. The cost includes 2-four course meals, non-alcoholic beverages and a great 2 hour experience.

Lecture and knowledge class - All Ages

Here’s some scary food for thought: to gain five pounds from now to the end of January, all you have to do is eat an average of 200 calories per day more than you need -- an ounce of fudge here, an ounce of gravy there, some pecan pie. If you need to ‘get a grip’ on eating splurges, the winter holiday months are key to your long range planning. Come and learn techniques that will enable you to enjoy the holidays without the bloat and sluggishness that comes with the daily intake of carbs and sugar.
