Eating is one of the great pleasures of life, but it is often said we eat with our eyes. What then happens when our sight is lost ? It may sound a little strange at first, but by suppressing the dominant sense of sight, you will enter a unique sensory experience. Do you know the difference between a poached pear and a peach just by taste? Do you know how sound effects the way you eat? What does a tomato really taste like? How does colour effect how you taste things?

This is the focus of our exciting event "Blind Dining". This fun night aims to take you on a dining experience as a blind person might to re-evaluate the notions of taste and smell through our gastronomic journey with our specially made 3 course menus.

The night will include some quirky challenges and finish with an auction were you could pick up some thrilling prizes such as a spa day, a golfing day .

The money raised from this night will all go to Cornwall Blind Association, a local Cornish charity that aims to help improve the lives of people who are living with visual impairments Founded in 1855, we are one of the oldest existing charities in Cornwall, with all money raised spent in the county. As 70p of every £1 we raise must come from voluntary sources we rely on support like yours.

This unique event is being held at the famous Trevaskis farm on the 4th of March 2014, with wholesome organic food. Tickets for individuals are £23, with discounts for buying 5 tickets (5% discount at £107. 50).
