We can all appreciate the atmospheric experience of dining by candlelight, but why not take it a step further and dine entirely in the dark? Do you think that you could distinguish between flavours without actually seeing the meal in front of you? Psychologists have studied the impact that eating in the dark has on the overall experience of eating a meal, with intriguing results. Eating without the aid of lighting is said to heighten the culinary experience by encouraging people to really savour the flavours of the food. Imagine the intricate flavours dancing on your palate, whilst you take in the pleasant smells and sounds of your surroundings. It sounds pretty amazing, and guess what? You can experience this amazing phenomenon yourself this festive season. The Dining In The Dark Christmas Special is coming to a darkened restaurant near you very soon, and all you need to do to get yourself on the waiting list is sign up to the plan on Fever. This amazing Christmas experience has been fine tuned to deliver a smooth journey from the restaurant door to your table so don’t worry, there will be no fumbling around in the dark to find your chair.
