Dinner in a Blindfold-A Meal in the Dark is 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. The Chef will be making the menu based on the availability of local produce and meats on that day, thus Chef’s Choice. The meal will conclude by the revealing the ingredients of each course. Still and sparkling water will be served. In addition, we are able to cater the meal to meet any special dietary needs as long as we have advanced notice. We request that you arrive 5 to 10 minutes prior to the class as we will only be offering one seating. Reservations are necessary. The cost includes a-four course meals, non-alcohol beverages and a great 2 hour experience
