Cork Dork: Savoring Wine with All Your Senses *SOLD OUT*Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2017 Time: 6:00 pm-8:00 pm Location: Manly Residence in Dorset Fee: $55 in advance
Join Bianca Bosker - author of Cork Dork, hailed as the “KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL of wine” - for an unorthodox evening of wine drinking, blind tasting, and sniffing that will stimulate all your senses and reveal the stories lurking in a glass of wine. Inspired by sommeliers who train their senses the way Olympians train their bodies, Bianca plunged inside underground blind-tasting groups, Michelin-starred restaurants, high-stakes competitions, and neuroscientists' labs as she trained to become a "somm" and uncover the very nature of taste. Thanks in large part to Plato and Aristotle, who dismissed taste and smell as the least useful of our faculties, most of us ignore two of our five senses. Drawing on Bianca's experience in fMRIs and cellars, you'll discover how to hone your palate, savor wine, and what we gain from moving beyond "mindulness" to "sensefulness." Space is limited.
All participants will receive a copy of Cork Dork.
