About - The Chefs Studio


The Chef’s Studio is a unique concept space located in the heart of Cape Town. We host interactive dining experiences and masterclasses for people who are as excited about what goes into creating a beautiful dish, as they are about eating it.

The Chef’s Studio is the perfect space for birthday parties, events, team buildings, or corporate functions. Guests explore their cooking abilities under the guidance of a professional chef, before sitting down to indulge in a feast for the senses; a multiple course meal which showcases the best that fine dining has to offer.

Featuring custom-built workstations equipped with the latest cooking technology from Siemens, a communal table for social dining, as well as an elegant private dining room, guests can indulge in a one-of-a-kind experience while soaking in the ambience of the Mother City. With the global pandemic safety is our first priority. The cooking workstations in the studio are well spaced apart and frequently sanitised. We observe strict sanitisation protocols, so please be assured you are in good hands.


The Chef’s Studio was founded by Chef Matt Manning. Born in England, Matt perfected his trade in London’s finest Michelin-starred restaurants under the tutelage of some of the best in the business, including Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing and Bryn Williams. Upon relocating to South Africa, Matt worked at La Colombe, before his inherent entrepreneurial spirit saw him start his own business in private cheffing and events. In December 2018 Matt then opened his first restaurant; Grub & Vine, located in the same building as The Chef's Studio followed by Culture Wine Bar in 2020.
