A Blind Taste is a unique, intimate dining event that we consider to be the city’s most incomparable non-profit fundraiser.
The event is held at La Petite Grocery on Magazine St. in New Orleans, and features a five-course dinner with wine pairings created by James Beard Award-winning Chef Justin Devillier. During dinner, guests wear blindfolds, removing one sense but also heightening others and one’s ability to discover the unique flavors of the event. Our goal is that by dining blindfolded, our guests will gain awareness of some of the challenges that our listeners experience on a daily basis. Proceeds from A Blind Taste support operations and programming on WRBH.
WRBH is a 501(c)3 non-profit reading radio service that, for over 40 years now, has been broadcasting readings of newspapers, books, and magazines so that the blind and print impaired receive the same ease of access to current information as their sighted peers. As a constant source of literature and information to many who live in New Orleans, WRBH is a unique and invaluable asset to the entire community. We are the only reading radio service to operate on the FM dial in the United States and all of our on-air voices are volunteers.
