Baking Techniques, History, & Science
Or is the whole “food entertainment” thing going too darn far?
I’d forgotten about this place. A friend told me about it, she’d been there before at the Paris location. The food was actually not very good…and being blind while tasting it only emphasized that.
Ha! Another great point. It stands to reason: if your diners can’t see what they’re eating, the tastes and aromas better be able to make up for it!
Yeah, I don’t think it’s for me. By the time we get to go to a nice restaurant I want to experience it with as many senses as I am able. There are so many other wonderful choices for a fine meal.
Well said. I eat with my eyes too. This who idea seems just too…I dunno…like a game, not a meal.
There’s one of these in Hamburg, it’s inside a museum. The museum is also pitch black and your guide, someone blind, leads you through different day to day situations which you feel your way through. Then, if you want, you can go try your luck at eating in the dark. I haven’t been there, but I think it’s a pretty cool idea. Not sure if all those other places also work in connection with a museum too..? Haven’t heard any food reviews on it, though, now that you mention it.
When I first heard about this concept I was briefly interested, but after further consideration I found that I think like Connie and prefer to enjoy the sights in addition to everything else if I am going out for a nice meal.
Also, I keep thinking about the stories I’ve read about early explorers sailing to distant continents, out of sight of land for months at a time — and sitting in the dark to eat their food so they wouldn’t have to see the parasites living in it.
Funny you should mention that. Troops in the American Civil War used to eat their crackers (hard tack) at night for the same reason: so they couldn’t see the weevils!
