The smallest chef in the world has come to Cape Town and on a quest. “Le Petit Chef sur les traces de Marco Polo” offers a two-hour gastronomic program that tells the adventures of the little chef as he follows the exploratory maps of Marco Polo. It really is like traveling the world, except you just have to go to Capital 15 on Orange in Gardens.

Beyond delighting the taste buds, the tales come to life to feed our imagination. Projections and 3D mapping use optical illusion techniques to project the little Chef who is cooking on your plate and on your table!

The show’s six-course dinner takes guests on a culinary journey through the lands visited by the legendary traveler, imbued with the essence of each country traversed with a local twist.

In this series of stories, the story is told of a South African who meets Le Petit Chef while traveling in France and becomes his assistant – eventually bringing him back to Cape Town.

“This is truly a remarkable and unique culinary adventure, never seen before in Cape Town – a city accustomed to the best dining experiences the world has to offer,” said Garnet Basson, COO of The Capital Hotels. and Apartments. “We are so proud that Le Petit Chef has chosen our hotel to present this incredible show at the Cape Town market, and we look forward to the success of the show, in our specially adapted room.”

A taste of the experience:

Diners have the option of pairing Steenberg wines to complement the dishes served – one wine for each course and country that showcases a culinary harmony of food and drink.

Although the menu remains shrouded in mystery, sit down and let Executive Chef Gerard van Staden (along with the Little Chef) and his team of culinary wizards delight all taste buds, whatever your dietary needs – vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free , halal-and-kosher friendly.
