We’re inviting people to experience chocolate in a new light on Thursday 30th October. We will be hosting an exclusive Tasting in the Dark event as part of the Illuminating York Festival. From 7pm, embark on a unique journey of sensory exploration as you can take part in a chocolate tasting session without your sight.
From the toasted, dark, earthy flavours of cocoa to notes of citrus, herbal and even floral – there are a whole host of flavours contained within one piece of chocolate. Our sight significantly affects the way we taste food as our brain attempts to perceive flavours before food reaches our taste buds. Expert guides and chocolatiers will be on hand on the evening to talk you through the process of tasting like a professional and experiencing flavours without the help of your vision.
Tickets cost £15, including a drink on arrival. To find out more information and to book visit our website, visit the attraction or call 0845 498 941.
