Common SENSE

The Larder presents a five-part dinner series, designed to give you a unique, experimental and intimate food experience based on one of the five senses. Each sensory dinner evening takes you on an explorative, challenging, playful and intriguing five-course gastric journey. Choose one or more dinners from a series line-up of Sight (food porn), Touch (skin), Taste (tongue), Hearing (vibration) and Smell (perfume). If you’re keen to explore the feelings, acoustics, aromas, savours and visuals of food, you can’t miss these one-off, multi-sensory adventures.
