A unique culinary and design experience, the Gourmet Theatre will feature the talents of Chefs Luke Dale-Roberts of The Test Kitchen, Reuben Riffel of Reuben’s Restaurant, and David Higgs of The Saxon Hotel. Each will present their signature dishes for lunch and dinner sittings catering to only 42 guests at a time.
The FoodWineDesign Fair is the second setting for the Gourmet Theatre, with MasterCard having launched this unique concept at the Johannesburg Cap Classique and Champagne Festival in August 2012.
Crockery for the Gourmet Theatre has been commissioned from artisanal potter Tessa Gawith, and Katherine Glenday will supply bespoke water tumblers. The specially crafted oak tables, benches and chairs will be supplied by James Mudge Furniture Studios, and will be adorned with linen by Skinny laMinx creator, Heather Moore.
Artist Beezy Bailey has created a special edition of artworks entitled “Buckshot”, in line with the culinary themes of the Gourmet Theatre, and in keeping with the extraordinary quality of the concept, the chefs teams will weave their magic in a high-end custom-built kitchen created by The Culinary Equipment Company.
Seats at the Gourmet Theatre presented by MasterCard at the FoodWineDesign Fair are primarily reserved for World MasterCard cardholders, but limited tickets are available to members of the public at R800 per person for selected lunch and dinner sittings with tickets available for purchase at www.webtickets.co.za
Note: The Gourmet Theatre presented by MasterCard will make its next appearance in the Western Cape at the Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival from 30 November to 2 December 2012.
