THE CHEF'S STUDIO

THE CHEF'S STUDIO
The Chef’s Studio is a unique concept space located in the heart of Cape Town. We host interactive and experiential events for people who are as excited about what goes into creating a beautiful dish, as they are about eating it.

The Chef’s Studio sees guests exploring 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.

THE CHEF BEHIND THE STUDIO



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 embarking on a career as a private chef.

Matt became well-known locally for his interactive ‘One Ingredient’ pop-up dinners. Matt wanted to expand on this hyper-social style of dining through offering patrons a number of different, interactive experiences, in a contemporary and exciting new space. And so, the Chef’s Studio was born.
