Sensitive cooking for the blind show: aromas, textures, flavours…

Touch, smell and plate up your creation using only smell and touch. Look for similar flavours or aromas that you can combine with each other, play with textures and make your best pintxo in a different way, as sight is not the most important thing, but rather taste.

Tasting for the blind

This is a theoretical and practical session, specifically developed and directed at the blind, to begin to learn about wine. A wine expert will show us the technique and methodology of tasting, knowledge of white, rosé and red wines, their production, the different wine regions, as well as how to serve them, preserve them and accompany them with food.

Tasting Methodology: the tasting system and how to use our senses, the shapes of glasses, smells, temperatures for drinking, identification of flavours will be explained… The basics of making wines (whites, rosés, reds), different wine making systems, the main grape varieties and different production areas will also be given.

As for the practical part of the tasting, 4-5 wines (varietals, reds, whites…) will be studied. Preferably, the wines used will have labels in Braille. In addition, those attending can make their own wines, mixing the different varieties to taste and personalising the label.

Furthermore, with the intention of becoming aware about the nature of this activity, we provide the public with masks so that anyone can experience the potential of touch.
