Hottest New Dining Experience, Blindfolded Dinner with Private Chef in Hobart

Perfect for parties, celebrations, and small intimate gatherings, a blindfolded dinner is an interactive experience that’s fuelled by the power of your senses. Sit down at a table with your friends, be handed a blindfold, and prepare to let your tastebuds lead you on a journey by your private Chef in Hobart… 

What is a blindfolded dinner?

CHEFIN’s blindfolded dinner brings a refreshing theatrical take to Hobart fine dining. Led by personal chefs in Hobart, the experience takes you on a complex culinary journey without the sense of sight. With your blindfolds on, your private chef serves dish after dish, encouraging you to use your heightened senses to guess the ingredients used to flavour each meal. This is where the fun begins. With your blindfolds on and no sense of sight, your other senses will be heightened, allowing you to pick up delicate aromas, flavours, and textures like never before. If you’re a fan of fine dining and exquisite food, the blindfolded dinner experience will allow you to experience a whole new level of taste. 

Don’t expect the blindfolded dinner to be all serious, however. Your Hobart private chef will encourage you and your fellow diners to engage with one another as you taste your way through each course. Have fun trying to guess which ingredients are used and see which person at your dining table has the keenest senses of the group. After each dish is presented, your chef will give you the opportunity to taste your way through the magic and take a stab at what has been used to create the dish. 

After a short time, you’ll be able to remove your blindfolds to see the dish and continue your meal with your sense of sight (if you so choose!) Your private chef will then reveal the ingredients used, the origin of the dish, and any interesting stories or facts to help elevate your dining experience even further. It’s a whole new style of dining that’s both interactive, social, and theatrical, combining the best of Hobart fine dining with a relaxed, intimate atmosphere of intrigue. 

What to expect at a Hobart blindfolded dinner experience

When you book a blindfolded dinner, you’ll be paired with an innovative and talented chef from Hobart. They’ll work with you to craft a blindfolded dinner menu that’s catered to your tastes, preferred cuisine, and dietary requirements (without giving away the actual menu!) The blindfolded dinner menu will include 5-courses with two canapes, two entrees, two mains, and one dessert per person. When you show up on the day, your Hobart personal chef will be your guide through the journey… 

The best part about the blindfolded dinner – besides the incredible flavours – is the fact that you can host this experience anywhere you like. With CHEFIN’s incredible team of personal chefs Hobart, you’ll be able to enjoy the fun from your home, office space, a venue, outdoors, in the country, in the heart of the city, and even on a boat. Our chefs will travel to you and travel with you as well.

So, do you think you have what it takes to win your way through a blindfolded dinner? Have you sampled enough culinary textures and fancy yourself a whiz at picking out spices and high-end ingredients? Let’s give you a peek into what a blindfolded dinner in Hobart could look like, using dishes created by CHEFIN’s team of personal chefs in Hobart…
