Savour the Senses, presented by The Lions Club of Russell, is an exploration of taste, smell, and touch presented entirely online. The virtual event will support DeafBlind Ontario Services and will allow guests to savour the intertwining flavours of fine chocolate, wine, and moonshine.
Guests will receive a package prior to the event with three kinds of fine chocolate, two bottles of wine, and a sampler of moonshine. On October 23, they will open the package, and a chocolatier, sommelier, and whiskey maker will lead them through pairing the confections and instruct them on how to create their own pairings in an informative 90-minute instructional session.
“Savour the Senses is a great event to learn how to pair wines, chocolate and food in an unpretentious way,” said Susan Manahan, director of development and communications at DeafBlind Ontario Services. “Because it’s from the comfort of your own home, you don’t need to dress up, book a sitter or have a designated driver.”
The DeafBlind Ontario Foundation is a non-profit that provides individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, non-verbal, and deafblind with an array of services so they can live and thrive within the community.
The event will take place from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23. Visit deafblindontario.com for tickets by Oct. 7, or call 1-855-340-3267, ext. 289.
