I hadn't quite realised when I attended that I wasn't simply going to get to eat some nice food in the dark, this was apparently serious quizzing time. After eating each item we had to answer various questions about it. I didn't do terribly, getting over half, but I didn't win either. As a 'food blogger' I suppose I should feel a little ashamed at my lack of distinguished palette. I'll blame it on all those burgers and ribs i've been eating lately.

I wouldn't say eating without being able to see meant I could taste the food any better although the quiz element did mean you had to consider the flavours and ingredients more. There is certainly something unsettling about putting unknown things into your mouth, no one really likes surprises in that area do they. Luckily most of the dishes were pleasant, particularly the pork and chorizo burger and the Moroccan lamb both of which are on The Living Room's new menu.
