Award-winning DinnerTimeStories continues innovative experiences

by Tania Griffin

Southern Sun prides itself on partnering with innovative hospitality-driven projects, when those projects also bring a strong element of empowerment that resonates with the values that southern Africa’s leading hospitality group hangs its proverbial toque on.

One such partnership is DinnerTimeStories. This unique, internationally acclaimed, gastronomic experience enjoyed a triumphant run at The Beverly Hills Hotel in uMhlanga from February 2020 to May 2021, and has continued to captivate audiences with its innovative approach to dining – now enjoying another successful run at 54 on Bath in Rosebank since late October 2023.

The concept, created by two Belgian artists Filip Sterckx and Antoon Verbeeck, is produced by Paul Rouessart in South Africa to offer a unique new dining experience to the South African market. Madeleine Roux, general manager at 54 on Bath, comments: “The technology behind the show is remarkable and can be seen as an opportunity to upskill South Africans who might not have worked with this type of technology before.”

The DinnerTimeStories show is a two-and-a-half-hour immersive multisensory experience that showcases the world’s smallest chef. The show’s six course menu takes guest along a culinary journey that revolves around the 3D show and is complemented by a unique gastronomic experience full of fun and surprises. Diners engage in a five-senses spectacle as they savour the tastes of the projections along its sights, sounds and aromas. The 3D mapping concept uses animated optical illusion techniques that project a little chef cooking on your plate and table top. The mood, music and table patterns all change, with the menu served promising to immerse you in the most eye-catching meal you will ever experience.

“This animated 3D performance is a global phenomenon that brings the very best of cuisine and entertainment to your table, therefore, during the planning stages, I knew that I needed a hospitality partner that could offer not only beautiful venues in the right locations but also the culinary expertise and facilities essential to executing this unique gastronomic experience successfully. Southern Sun was the obvious choice,” says Rouessart.

This unforgettable dining experience is available for you to enjoy at 54 on Bath for a limited time. Book your place here or via Computicket.
