Sensual Eating Event Round 2

Another night of debauched Dionysian delicacies...

Thea Euryphaessa presents another night of debauched Dionysian delicacies on Wednesday 18 April.

After the resounding success of the first ‘Taste of Tantra’ Sensual Eating event, Manchester’s award-winning Mark Addy restaurant — together with Tantra organisation, Shakti Tantra and Sensual Eating’s Thea Euryphaessa — is pleased to announce another festive evening of decadent, plate-licking, moan-inducing food by candlelight.

Critically acclaimed chef, Robert Owen Brown, will create debauched Dionysian dishes to draw you in to reconnect with (and reconsider) the many dimensions of food. With a glint in his eye, Rob will encourage diners to get stuck in and reengage with food in ways rarely encouraged in restaurants. At the more Aphroditic end of the scale, diners will delight in the texture, scent, smell, and sight of delicacies both beautiful and luscious — a feast for all the senses.

Guests will also be encouraged to slow down, savour the moment, and playfully explore food from a more sensual perspective rather than it just being ‘fuel’ or something to mindlessly neck while on the hoof. In short, this is a night that gives full permission to pleasure; a night to break down barriers and reconnect with oneself and others within safe, open-minded, and convivial surroundings.

Shakti Tantra’s founders Hilly Spenceley and Sue Newsome will guide diners through the evening’s relaxed and playful proceedings with the opportunity for Q&A (Q&A will be anonymous: write your sex-, Tantra- and/or intimacy-related questions down beforehand to be placed in a bowl and answered on the night, time pending). So if you’ve ever been intrigued by the idea of Tantra and would like a taster (quite literally in this case), think of this as a toe-dipping introduction.

Please note this is a food-oriented event and not a bog standard, three-course meal. Guests are therefore encouraged to have a light bite beforehand.
