Experience dining like never the Dark! Join us at Hampshire House for our Tasting with a Twist Fundraiser to benefit National Braille Press on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 6PM.

NBP has spent nine decades in Boston serving the blind community in Massachusetts and across the country by providing high-quality braille books and materials at a fair price. Provide the gift of literacy to a blind child and celebrate 91 years with us at Hampshire House.

As a braille reader guides you through this interactive dinner, you will use aroma, texture and taste to explore the evening's menu without sight. Don't miss out on this unique and unforgettable sensory dining experience.

Individual Tickets are $91. Purchase your tickets online.

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!
