Join Claret Cup at Thank You For Coming for Blind-(d)ate, a tasting adventure where your eyes, nose and taste-buds collaborate in an unconventional way to enjoy food and create a collective, synesthetic eating environment.
Menu items will bear names that foreground the dominant color of the dish and hint at some of its other experiential qualities. Instead of relying on descriptions of dishes’ ingredients and methods of preparation, guests will choose their meals based on their attraction to the dominant color of each dish.
Claret-Cup hypothesizes that by intentionally obscuring familiar cognitive information about the food served, guests will use their other senses to collect and connect the clues provided for a heightened tasting experience. At the same time, guests’ initial color choices will form the environment in which the dining event unfolds, empowering them to both create and decipher a more complete experience through color.
If you are planning on coming to this dinner, please consider attending the screen-printing workshop in preparation for this dining experience!
