Whoever said that ‘all that glitters isn’t gold’ has clearly never attended the Le Petit Chef Southern Africa theatre of dining presented by DinnerTImeStoriesSA. If you want to see proof – THE WAIT IS OVER!  The small but seismic culinary event that is Le Petit Chef has returned to Jozi… Oui amis we can officially confirm it is true. 

Excited to visit old friends, and have the opportunity to blow the minds of those Gautengers he has not met, Le Petit Chef : Au Naturel will be bringing thrills to audiences at the fresh Blueberry Hill Hotel. Together with HOT 102.7FM, he cordially invites you to return to his brand-new show, to partake in all things culinary and social – 3D storytelling, accompanied by a six-course dining and entertainment extravaganza.

Le Petit Chef the spontaneous, nomadic and ‘smallest animated chef in the world’ has returned to share another of his gourmet adventures: Au Naturel, designed from simple, classic favourites with the world-famous Le Petit Chef French flair!  On the sanitized and appropriately distanced tabletops of the of the Blueberry Hill Hotel this tiny chef will surpass the greatest of your expectations, and make the city of Johannesburg truly sparkle!

Come and immerse yourself in the enhanced 4K projected 3D spectacle that will take you back to the root of all flavour, transforming monotony into intrigue … The delights for your eyes and ears are truly endless, but nothing compared to what Le Petit Chef SA has prepared for your nose and your tastebuds.

The entertainment is grounded in a feast of six courses that is both awe-inspiring and mouth-watering, infused with the essence of simplicity. It all begins with a complimentary glass of bubbles, and diners are given the option of a Boschendal 1685 Collection wine-pairing to complement each dish. The menu remains shrouded in mystery to the very last second… but sit back, embrace the anticipation, and allow resident Executive Chef Kelly Nonjinge (together with the world’s smallest Chef), to alight every tastebud.

And so, your authentic culinary transformation begins! In Au Naturel we are all about transforming the small and the simple into something never seen before.  Over the course of the evening, we will gather at the docks, saunter across the shoreline, conquer the forest and champion the grasslands with a level of style and class only achievable by the likes of Le Petit Chef. At each location your surroundings will change: creamy comforts will become zesty freshness, which we later abandon for the rich trappings of herbs and spices. NEVER a tasteless moment.

Vegetarian, gluten-free or halaal and worried you might miss out? Never fear! Le Petit Chef SA and Executive Chef Nonjinge are the best qualified dynamic duo ready and able to accommodate all dietary needs. All such requirements are dealt with on the day you check in for your dining experience.

The gourmet dining theatre hosts an intimate 48 guests per show (as per gazette requirements). We are concerned as much with top-notch entertainment, and titillating your tastebuds, as we are with your safety which now, more than ever before, is paramount. Le Petit Chef as an individual, and as an event, understands the power of those things small, and as such has implemented extensive COVID-19 protocols to protect diners and the fully COVID trained staff alike, to safeguard your health.
