Dinner Time Stories is a pop up dining experience. The show uses technology to take you on an journey with characters being projected onto the table, taking you on a trip across the globe.
Story Time with Le Petite Chef
When you arrive you are seated on a long wooden bench. In front of each guest is the dinner time story book, the lights are then dimmed as the show begins.
A tiny character called Le Petite Chef then comes onto your storybook. He’s travelling the world to find the best dishes and spices. Starting off in Marseille we begin the meal with an amuse bouche.
Food: Truffle Goats Cheese and Slow Roasted Tomato on a Gruyere Sesame Seed Biscuit, Tuna Nicoise Tartlet with a Soft Boiled Quail Egg.
Both dishes were tasty and full of flavour.
With each six courses you are served a drink that compliments the flavours of the food.
Drink: Le Chat Noir – This gin cocktail blended with fresh lime juice was lovely!
Food: Lamb Tagine Croquette in a Pistachio Crumb served with a Harisan & Lemon Dip, Smoked Aubergine Caviar in a filo Cup with Baby Ratatouille Garnish, Vine Leaves filled with Rice, Mint, Parsley, Tomato & Onion cooked in Lemon Juice & Olive Oil with a Spicy Tomato & Cucumber dip, Zaatar Thyme, Herbs, Sesame Seeds & Olive Oil and Corn Fed Chicken Kebab.
All these small dishes were full of flavour, I especially loved the chicken kebab dish.
Drink: The complimenting gin was blended with mint and lemon.
Food: Butter chicken served on a Mini Poppadom with Mint, Cauliflower Pannacotta with Gobi Aloo
Drink: Pineapple Mango Cobbler – This was my favourite cocktail it was fruity and sweet and served with ice.
Food: I opted for the duck which came with a honey and ginger sauce. The duck was cooked to perfection and was truly delicious.
Drink: Red wine, people who opted for the fish were served a white wine
For the last course we returned to Le Petite Chef’s homeland of France. He cooked our Caramelised Saffron Crème Brûlée dessert virtually before the real deal was unveiled. I’m a huge fan of creme brûlée and loved this dish.
It was a truly magical experience, unlike anything I’d seen before. The atmosphere was full of excitement as you wait to see where Le Petite Chef is taking you next. The food and drinks were all delicious and it’s an experience I won’t forget.
