There’s nothing as sexy as a beautifully plated gourmet dinner placed in front of you.
If you have ever watched Masterchef, you will know that great food is eaten with the mouth and the eyes. A dish that doesn’t look appealing takes away from the dining experience. 

Food plating and presentation are central to our training programme for yacht chefs, as they need to present the best food in the most attractive manner. We focus on creative and thoughtful plating as integral to everything we do, and we have three great events this week to enhances both the look and taste of your food.  Come and join us at:

Jackie O’ lunch – Thursday from 13h00
Plating and presentation class – Thursday from 13h00
Pop-up Dinner – Friday from 18h30
