Expand your palate with a lavish, internationally acclaimed culinary experience during a two-hour food adventure with the world’s smallest chef.
Le Petit Chef has returned to the Ritz-Carlton Jeddah to share another gourmet adventure with guests by traveling in the footsteps of Marco Polo.
The tiny chef animation greets guests, introduces the dining concept and features food from the continents he travels through. This is accompanied by themed music, props and a six-course menu.
The visual storytelling is done through a mix of overhead projection using 3D mapping technology and projection around the walls of the restaurant, with changing scenery for each location the chef travels to. The restaurant’s four-wall projection is a world first and gives diners more of a feel for the story.
The adventure starts with a bright white tabletop transforming into an interactive animated storybook and a culinary theater.
The show highlights Le Petit Chef’s stopovers in France, Arabia, India, the Himalayas and China, inspired by Marco Polo’s voyage to the East via the Silk Road.
During the meal, guests will be served asparagus velouté and crème de volaille with crispy beef bacon (soup) from France. Moving on to Arabia, diners will be served avocado mint hummus with tomato and feta cheese salad. The next trip is to India, where diners are treated to savory-spice tandoori lamb chops or wagyu beef tandoori kebab, accompanied by salad, mango pickle, mint chutney and papadams.
During Le Petit Chef’s visit to the snow-capped Himalayas, lemon sorbet is served to cleanse the palate. The journey continues to China, where guests will feast on salmon or lobster with yuzu marinade, bok choy and black pepper sauce. The food experience ends with a dessert created using ingredients from the places the chef has visited on his culinary journey — a three-layer apple crumble rice pudding topped with raspberry jam is served to guests.
