90 Years, 9 Plates

Blindfolded guests enjoying the tasting experience.

On April 27th, guests at our 90 Years, 9 Plates event enjoyed a unique blindfolded dining experience. They filled the room with oohs, aahs, and gasps of surprise as braille reader Tanja led them through nine mystery courses. As they tasted each dish, attendees shouted out reactions and guessed at what they were tasting.

It was a true pleasure to slow down and savor every aspect of the dining experience with senses other than sight. We thank Hampshire House for the specially designed menu and the wonderful food plates created and prepared by Chef Marcus. April 27th was truly an evening of food and fun for a great cause — braille literacy!
