The first Canadian pop-up of Dinner Time Stories, presented by HEXO and brought to life by The Substance Group and Go West Creative, will debut in Toronto this September.
Billed as an immersive dining experience “elevated by cutting-edge 3D technology,” the two-hour culinary adventure follows the route of Le Petit Chef, as he makes his way along the historic route of Marco Polo on the Silk Road.
According to a news release, Dinner Time Stories was “first launched in Dubai by Belgium-based creators Skullmapping and producer Nadine Beshir,” and has since its inception “left guests in awe throughout the Arabian Gulf, Europe and its only other North American presentation in Nashville.”
Presented over six courses, the menu from Chef Bashir Munye of 10tation catering will showcase international cuisine while the “production delivers an unforgettable journey around the world.”
Diners should expect an evening of music, table patterns, props and decorations, that change as the chapters of the story progress. The hero of the story, Le Petit Chef, will come to life right atop the table settings through 3D digital mapping and his journey will be synced with each course.
“When I was first introduced to the Dinner Time Stories concept, I was completely blown away by the extraordinary technology, unmatched service and absolutely delicious food that draws you into the world of Le Petit Chef,” says Neil Forester, owner of The Substance Group. “There is a huge appetite for something like this in Toronto and I am thrilled to lead the team that is bringing Dinner Time Stories to the city.”
Look forward to a menu that opens with an amuse bouche of French classic ratatouille, followed by cuisines from North Africa, India, and a selection of dishes from China before culminating in a dessert course infused with elements and ingredients collected from Le Petit Chef’s adventures across the world.
The show will run from September 29 to November 25 in Toronto and offer two seatings nightly. Tickets are $200 per person, with wine pairing packages available, and are on sale to the public as of July 25.
