The premise was to blindly guess the ingredients of a plentiful succession of taster-sized treats by taste and smell alone, but with the Living Room's adventurous and highly flavoursome dishes this proved to be a rather difficult, though also perplexingly delicious challenge. With blindfolds on, our hands were guided to ladle-style Chinese spoons heaped with mysterious food samples and amidst much blind banter and giggling we all duly made both educated and wild and crazy guesses, including our own confidential totally random stab in the dark at vension in the Shepherd's Pie (score!)
Highlights of this mini-sized sampling of the Living Room winter menu included the Moroccan Spiced Lamb (pictured) a lovely moist duck in a plum chutney, a beautifully flavoured sea bass and the scrummy desserts passionfruit and coconut creme brule (pictured) with the both crunchy and creamy Basil grande.
Tasty, quirky, messy and fun, strangely bonding and just a little bit kinky, this was a gastronomic night of culinary eye-openers and we confidentially highly recommend a dining experience at The Living Room- with blindfolds optional. Mmmm!
