Bonjour Western Cape…

Own my NEW story and you’ll get to write the ending!
Tell me more

I have travelled the world in search of a special place.

My journey has taken me to unfathomable places.

I am a seeker of tales of taste, of gastronomic gallantry, of an experience rather than a meal.

This is my reputation. This is my legacy.

After a special few months in Johannesburg I decided to explore South Africa. My ultimate destination: Franschhoek – the culinary heart of South Africa. On the slopes of the prestigious Franschhoek I have found a haven like no other, shaped by the ‘Au Naturel’ embrace of spectacular mountain ranges.
It is here where you will find L’Ermitage Chateau & Villas – an exclusive country village, distinctive in sophistication, contemporary elegance and gracious hospitality and where I have found ‘la belle vie’ – the good life – my new friends, great company, delicious food and relaxation.

Situated amongst the breath taking beauty of the Franschhoek mountain slopes,

#LePetitChefSA will put on a show like no other.

About The Show


‘Le Petit Chef : Au Naturel’ is a two and a half hour dining show that tells the story of how the world’s smallest chef who has traversed all the world to find the most fantastic flavours, has discovered the perfect spot to enjoy the good things in life, relax and be happy.


For Le Petit Chef, that means soaking up the Cape sun while offering up a feast of fantastic French fare made with the flair and panache that you’d expect from the little guy. If you’re going to eat, drink and be merry – there’s no better place to do it than L’Ermitage Chatèau & Villas and in no better company than the world’s smallest chef. C’est la vie!

The unparalleled 3D show is complimented by a unique gastronomic experience full of fun and surprises. Diners engage in a 5-senses spectacle as they savour the tastes of the story along its sights, sounds and aromas. The 3D mapping concept uses animated optical illusion techniques which project our little chef cooking on your plate and table top.
