A tasting serves up a theme through a series of courses, that take type as the starting point. A course is either an activity, game, smell, sound, taste, drink or cocktail. Guests are taken on a multisensory journey that reveals a story or a theme, accompanied by a menu to mark the event.
A tasting can accompany an installation, workshop or talk.
