A Tactile Taste of Helsinki

a space-time tasting of a rainy Friday in Helsinki

A Tactile Taste of Helsinki strives to elevate the everyday meal by gathering all five senses in the enjoyment and consumption of each dish. This menu was created as an impressionistic tasting of Helsinki in the eyes and tastebuds of a curious eater visiting the city. Each of the dishes has been named after a place and time that inspired its creation. The experience that enfolds is embedded in basic human-connectedness. By the simple act of eating, diners are not only connected to fellow-diners in the frame of a communal performance, but also invited to the witness the artist’s moment of space-time-taste creation.

More about the experience

A Tactile Taste of Helsinki is an experiential performance dinner presented by Carmen C. Wong (Washington, D.C.) and architect/urban planner Sofia de Vocht (Helsinki) featuring dancer Beniamino Borghi. Adventurous diners and curious eaters of art, come be a part of a 7-course gastro-art performance that is part meal and part theatrical synaesthetic experience of Helsinki.

This light experimental dinner is a prix-fixe EUR15 and will leave you room to enjoy other Ravintolapäivä offerings. Not recommended for vegetarians or those with food allergies as we are unable to accommodate changes.

A Tactile Taste of Helsinki on kokeellinen performanssi-illallinen, jonka ovat suunnitelleet banished productionsin Carmen C. Wong (Washington, D.C.) ja arkkitehti/kaupunkisuunnittelija Sofia de Vocht (Helsinki). Esityksessä on mukana tanssija Beniamino Borghi. Rohkeat illastajat ja uteliaat taiteenkuluttajat voivat osallistua seitsemän ruokalajin gastrotaiteelliseen performanssiin, joka on sekä ateria että moniaistillinen tulkinta Helsingistä.

Kevyt elämyspäivällinen, jonka hinta on 15 euroa, jättää vatsaasi tilaa nauttia muistakin Ravintolapäivän antimista. Valmiin ateriakokoonpanon vuoksi emme valitettavasti voi suosittella illallista kasvissyöjille emmekä ruoka-allergikoille.

Tästä näet millaisia illallisia olemme järjestäneet aiemmin.
