How many people can you accommodate?
From 20 – 40 people ‘hands-on’ experience. Guests will be split into groups to prepare and cook the 12-15 selected recipes.
From 40 – 80 people ‘hands-on’ experience.
We host 2 food interactions during this period. One group is preparing food, and the other group is entertained with a specialized wine tasting and/or a glass tasting.
The group reunite around the Webers and general discussion points, and then swap over respectively.
80 people or more we suggest a demonstration and cocktail style event with audience participation.
Small pre-select groups can do a hands-on experience in front of the rest of the audience. Great to see management sweating and explaining what they are doing which in turn relates back to their work and business goals.
Please note that we can accommodate 2 food interactions for larger groups, however this is venue dependent. We look forwad to discussing the options with you.
Do we cater for specific food needs?
Yes we do. All our general meat product that can be deemed as Halaal is certified. Should you wish for a particular protein type to be omitted or the event is Kosher, please let me know and I will find a suitable replacement to suit client needs.
We always have various vegetarian options available on the day, so you will not go hungry either! If you would like the event to be geared more vegetarian based, then we can of course do that too.
Where are we located?
ANYWHERE…. REALLY. Our set is entirely mobile so we can travel all over South Africa. We will work with your selected venue or we can recommend one of our preferred locations for such types of events around the country.
Our base is the Lagoon Beach Hotel & Spa, so if you are in the Western Cape we have you covered with the most amazing back drop of Table Mountain and the Mother City.
If you would like to use our base in Cape Town: what ca we offer?
Can we arrange accommodation?
We have access to preferential rates. Lagoon Beach Hotel & Spa is graded 4* and has all the modern services for guests and companies.
Do they provide conferencing facilities?
A range of conferencing facilities are available at the hotel with all the amenities required. The team at Lagoon Beach Hotel are ready to help you!
Your venue? What do we require:
What do we require of a venue?
Approx 40 sq/m of undercover/indoor area, well lit, for the mobile kitchen workstations.
An additional dining area and buffet display table are required (preferably in the same room as the kitchen workstations). Area size dependable on number of guests and configuration of set-up.
A safe and approved outside area or courtyard where the Webers can be utilised.
Access to temporary or fixed kitchen, basic appliance and wash up area.
Crockery, cutlery, glassware, tables and chairs are venue dependent. We can source, if required.
Staff and barman are venue dependent. We can source, if required.
Is there a full bar service?
Subject to venue selection and on-consumption licensing. We specialize in craft gins, whiskeys and wine. Beverages are charged out on a consumption basis only.
Can we brand your event?
Your brand or theme on the cover of each guest’s recipe booklet (included).
Think branded chef hats and aprons to look the part. We have various colours to choose from and can embroider logos, quirky remarks, slogans and individual names.
We manage all your décor needs on your behalf.
Meet and greet 2 days before the scheduled event.
Half day is required to prepare venue: décor, kitchen workstations, receiving of Webers etc.
DAY OF EVENT is made up of final preparations and hosting your wonderful experience.
DAY AFTER your event requires a few hours to “strike out”, again depends on scheduling time and finishing of the event the previous day.
What is an interactive dessert?
A large table is set up and acts as a canvas for your guest to “paint” and fill.
Guests get to add individual components of the dessert to create a custom designed buffet that is eaten off the table. Think an Eaton mess/ Pavlova on steroids – meringues, jelly, whipped cream, jelly tots, raspberry sauce and the like.
