Obscura Society NY: "Through the Pagan Wheel" Vernal Equinox Dinner - Atlas Obscura


Obscura Society NY: "Through the Pagan Wheel" Vernal Equinox Dinner

An extravagant springtime dining experience, with deep roots in the the ancient past

Join Ravenous Craft and the New York Obscura Society for an immersive dinner series inspired by the wild natural world, life and death cycles of the year, and the carnal elements inherent to consuming food.

The dinner series explores the unexplainable magic and alchemy of food in connection with the Earth, as related to the natural shifts that mark the beginnings of new seasons and cycles. Each dinner event provides context for historic Pagan celebrations through a multi-course tasting menu, wine pairings, and immersive installations. These sumptuous feasts are designed to ignite dialogue about reconnecting with the wild human spirit that links us to former human civilizations which venerated the Earth’s cycles, the sun, and the moon. 
Inspired by belief systems of pre-Modern Europe, as well as cross-cultural ancient civilizations, the dinner series is based around the equinox days, solstice days, and the cross quarter holidays, timed to coincide with the traditional Pagan feast days. The carefully curated feasts, created by Mallory Lance of Ravenous Craft, are sourced from locally foraged, hunted, and ecologically integral ingredients that are natural to the time of year for each celebration.

On March 20, 2016, we celebrate the Vernal Equinox, when our days are equal parts dark and light, the cold winter is fading, and Spring is upon us. Join us in celebrating the light, reflecting on death, and reveling in the sensory experience of connecting to our wild natures.
