Prepare to amplify your affinity with food and eating.

Ride along with Chef BeLive as he takes you and his raw culinary artistry to a new level – a journey to behold your taste sensations, to celebrate food as you’ve never done before. … all in the style of effortless action, allowing all to unfold naturally within you and for you.

Prepare to be dazzled throughout the evening while Chef BeLive taunts and bewitches our senses.


Eyes wide shut.

The dinner will begin with an exquisite appetizer, one that will enhance your palate as you taste the flavors and experience the textures while blindfolded. This is a time to explore the depths of our own intimacies with food.

Prepare yourself for an inward journey guaranteed to stimulate amusement and bemusement.

While blindfolded, you’ll have the care from Brian, not only through his food, but also as he leads you through the profound experience of sightless eating. This is your opportunity to turn inward to curb your appetite for a deeper connection with your food. Be independent from exterior forces, go within to touch upon the will, the want, the desire to feed yourself with love and nourishment through healthful food.


Eyes wide open.

Prepare to be enraptured by the kaleidoscope of colors and textures as we move on to the main course with our eyes wide open.

By now your senses will be heightened, your awareness piqued. And as you feast your eyes on the vivid colors of the meal the inevitable will happen, wei wu wei will prevail.

Serving: BBQ Jackfruit with Traditional Cole Slaw
