"Dining in the Dark"
It's not unusual to close your eyes and savor a bite of your favorite dish...but have you ever consumed an entire meal that way - replacing sight with touch, taste and tecture?
Based on a restaurant concept popularized in Paris and New York, Dining in the Dark is a signature CNIB event where diners experience a meal without the use of their sight. Participants wear blindfolds for a unique, sensory experience in which they can explore their meal in a whole new way.
On March 1, 2019 the ninth annual Dining in the Dark will take place at the Holland College Culinary Institute. The evening will include a three-course meal, wine and of course, blindfolds. Guests will have the chance to bid on extraordinary auction item prizes and hear from inspiring individuals who will share their experiences living with vision loss.
All proceeds will help make a lasting difference in the lives of Islanders who are blind or partially sighted.
