  • Chef’s Studio -by Chef Matt Manning – location – upstairs from Grub & Vine.   Note Matt Manning is a well known Chef who has been offering interactive cooking lessons for years in Cape Town.  Finally he has his own hands on cooking kitchen to give classes.  To quote Matt: “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 venue has just been completed and is looking wonderful!   I will get a photo when I am next there!    Location 103 Bree Street Cape Town.   You can book on facebook or from their website
