Returning back for its sixth annual event, Dinner in the Dark hosted by South Australia's oldest charity Can:Do 4 Kids will take over the beautiful venue of the National Wine Centre on April 12 (Friday), as part of Tasting Australia.

A unique dining experience that will stimulate your senses through the art of blind-folded tasting, event goers can expect offerings from some of South Australia's finest, where the menu will bring together a colourful and decorated selection of the best produce, wine (and even oil) from South Australia.

The idea of this one-of-a-kind dining experiences ties in with the mission of Can:Do 4Kids, which works towards providing therapy and support to children and the youth who may have vision and or hearing impairments and may require sensory services to combat the challenges.

Prepared by National Wine Centre Executive Chef Steven Clarke, there will be a 4-course 'mystery menu' that will challenge guests to a mix of textures and flavours that will deliver a tingling and exciting gastronomic experience. This will be Clarke's 3rd time participating with Tasting Australia and here's what he has to say about this year's event:

"Although the menu must stay a mystery, I can share that I have utilised local SA produce enhanced with native ingredients in each of the four courses. I can't wait to show the guests what we have in store for them this year!"

Kicking off the festivities of this exciting event, guests will begin with outdoor pre-dinner drinks, live oyster shucking and canapés in the courtyard, followed by an intimate indoor dining experience, which will be hosted by a local winemaker at each table, where each course will be complemented with the perfect glass of wine - and this will be enjoyed by guests, while they are blindfolded.

This will be the first time that Can:Do 4Kids will be involved with Tasting Australia, so to mark this significant moment, the event will be hosted by none other than Max Mason - the man behind South Australian Ocular Wines, and former owner of The Henry Austin:

"I'm so excited to host Dinner in the Dark and to work further with Can:Do 4Kids... We live in a state where good food is so central to people's lives and this event, as part of Tasting Australia, adds a valuable and a fun dimension to both the dinner and to the fundraising efforts."
