Experientiality and visual art have all too well become a part of the culinary world. And a rather fitting example of this is the recently opened restaurant at Mandarin Oriental Marrakech that is inviting guests for a one-of-kind gourmet cuisine experience that promises to do a lot more than only pleasing your taste buds.
Called the Le Petit Chef, the restaurant ropes in interactive technology and culinary delights for guests in a single all-inclusive package. The deal includes luxurious accommodation, airport transfers and breakfast with a stay in a private villa or infinity suite, an exclusive Petit Chef Dinner for two, a Round-trip transfer from Marrakech Menara Airport along with a Fast Track option through the Airport. The highlight of the drill of-course is the two hour Le Petit Chef dining show that takes guests on an animated culinary journey across countries visited by Marco Polo with the help of the animated character Le Petit Chef (created by created by Belgian artists’ collective Skullmapping).
Throughout the experience, diners are shown culinary stories on table-top screens that also double placemats. From breathing-in the icy air of the Himalayas one moment and feeling the hot and heady vibe of an Arabic souk the next, the Le Petit Package takes guests on an all-round the world food trip right from the confines of their dining seats. The show will be held in the library area of Mes’lalla restaurant from 17 January to 4 May 2019, with a six-course dinner priced at $135 (MAD 1,280) per person. The entire Petit Chef package, on the other hand, will set back connoisseurs by approximately $1140 (EUR 1,000) per night.
