Le Petit Chef Australia

fri - sun

Le Petit Chef brings 3D projection mapping technology to the dinner table for an Australian ­first series of events.

It’s been a hit with diners throughout the world: from London, Toronto, Berlin, Dubai and Stockholm, to Nashville, Istanbul and Cologne.

Now the Le Petit Chef immersive dining concept is about to launch on our shores, and Melbourne foodies are first in line to join the culinary adventure.

The concept, which was developed in Belgium by creative studio Skullmapping, uses 3D rendering and projection mapping technology to tell the story of a 58mm miniature chef—who catches, prepares and cooks dinner before diners’ eyes. Guests can expect Le Petit Chef to whip up three courses over the course of a typical evening, including a Bouillabaisse (fragrant vegetable broth with seafood), Glazed Brisket with Broccolini and Kale, and a Caramelized Milk Ice Cream with Whipped Cream and Berries. There’s also an Australian wine pairing and non­alcoholic cocktail pairing on offer to complement the meal.

Cute animation aside, a spokesman for Interactive Dinner (the company behind the events) explained that there’s more to the concept than meets the eye:
“Le Petit Chef is about storytelling. We’re using technology in a playful way to create an immersive journey for diners—and help tell the story about where their food has come from. How it’s created and how it’s connected to us.”

Le Petit Chef has received widespread attention in China, where the event has already taken place in more than 30 restaurants (in 2017 alone, over 100,000 guests took part). For Interactive Dinner, high levels of Chinese tourism into the Australian market have revealed new opportunities to expand the project. With Melbourne’s reputation as a leader in food, art and innovation, it makes sense that the city will be first to play host.

The dinners will take place from Wednesday 21 November at the newly opened Cardigan Place Cellars wine bar in Albert Park.
