Dinnertime Stories with Le Petit Chef

Dinnertime Stories JoziStyle

This weekend we are going to Dinnertime Stories with Le Petit Chef- the internationally acclaimed gastronomic experience who we featured on JoziStyle the last time they were cooking up a storm in Johannesburg.

I don’t think calling it a dinner and a show quite encapsulates the multi-sensory experience that this six-course fun dining experience offers. It features the latest and greatest 3D, 4K dining installation presented by the world’s smallest chef. This time the theme is how to become the world’s greatest chef. Because let’s face it, while size might not be important, it is even less important when you’re presenting big flavors, and that is exactly what Dinnertime Stories does.

Dinnertime Stories presents really big flavours presented by the world’s smallest chef. I’m not going to tell you what to expect, because I don’t know myself yet, but this is a completely brand new show, and I think part of the excitement is not knowing what to expect.

I know a lot of people share their videos and photographs online, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram- and I highly recommend doing that to promote the show, because it is a show, as well as an incredible dinner. But I also think people deserve to be surprised, they deserve to be amazed, and you actually can’t do it justice. By the way, I’m going to share a video that was given to me by Dinnertime Stories, which I think does do it justice, just enough to whet your appetite.

You can expect a delectable six-course dinner that is designed to mirror the show’s tabletop projected entertainment. And there’s always a wine pairing. You’ve got an option just to go for the food, and you can pay for your drinks separately, or you can opt for the specially paired wine selection, which I think makes better sense because the food is so incredible, you may as well extend it into the full wining and dining experience.

And as we know, wine is the elixir of life, and Le Petit Chef is French after all. Just a quick heads up, if you’ve got any dietary restrictions you can inform them just before the show, they do cater for all different kinds of diets, regardless if you are vegan, vegetarian, lactose or gluten intolerant, they also cater for halal and kosher preferences.

It amazes me that when we went to the Le Petit Chef a couple of years ago, literally when you sign in, they give you a form just to confirm any dietary preferences and allergies, and it really is testament to the teamwork in the kitchen that they can prepare so many diverse dishes, literally at the drop of a hat.

I do recommend that you go hungry, because with the six courses that you’re going to be presented with, you are not going to be leaving hungry. And with six glasses of wine, you’re probably not going to be leaving sober either. So definitely plan on, if you’re planning on drinking, getting a taxi.

Individual attention is the name of the game. There are only 60 seats per show, which ensures that every guest is treated like a VIP. So if you’re feeling adventurous, and you’re looking for ideas for Valentine’s Day this would be a wonderful Valentine’s Day surprise for your loved one or yourself.

Considering that Dinnertime Stories is at 54 on Bath, decide that instead of getting a taxi, book yourself into the 54 on Bath hotel so you can have a romantic evening or weekend, celebrate Valentine’s Day, and indulge with Dinnertime Stories with Le Petit Chef.

Tickets: there are early bird special tickets of R1,295 per person, increasing up to R1,395. The wine pairing is available at an additional cost of R395 which I think is incredible value for money. You can buy tickets from Computicket. Bookings are essential because this is not a last-minute dining destination and you do want to get your tickets and consider checking into the hotel and make the most of your Dinnertime Stories experience.

I’m so excited about Dinnertime Stories and telling people to get their tickets, and I don’t even know what to expect, but I do know from the last Dinnertime Stories that I went to, it is the most magical experience. And it is 100% suitable for children.

The food is not fussy. It’s not complicated fine dining with unusual combinations. The food is very accessible. So if you want to rekindle your childhood memories or create memories for your children, Dinnertime Stories with Le Petit Chef is exactly the ticket. What I enjoyed about it, the world-class animations that you have probably never seen before.

The shows can be customized, but I’d recommend getting in touch with Dinnertime Stories directly. What I would recommend, make sure that your tummy is hungry and your phone is fully charged, because you’re going to want to take photographs and videos. But I’m a big believer, in allowing people to experience the show for themselves.
