Chef’s Table – a totally unique and exclusive dining experience

This is a totally unique and exclusive dining experience for parties of up to 90. This event can be incorporated into a conference or private party. Guests are invited to open envelopes at their place setting, revealing two lucky individuals per table who will have the chance to work alongside the kitchen team during the dinner. There will of course be no place to hide as the kitchen has fixed cameras with live images being beamed back to the room with their diners watching in anticipation.

There will be an opportunity for 14 people to join the brigade and cook all seven courses giving both the guests and the individual a fantastic insight into the workings of an award-winning hotel kitchen. After dinner the novice chefs stand alongside the kitchen brigade and enjoy traditional and well earned ‘santé du chef’.

What’s included:

  • Champagne reception with canapés
  • 7-course tasting menu dinner with matching wines
  • Live television link to the kitchen
  • Selected diners invited to help prepare each course
