Sitting down to a 5-course dinner prepared by one of the country’s best chefs in the middle of a forest, may seem like a bizarre thing to do at a music festival. Though at Littlegig, where we’re all about sensory experiences, it makes perfect sense.
Bredasdorp-born Arno Janse Van Rensburg – who earned The Kitchen at Maison (Franschoek) a coveted Eat Out Top 10 restaurant slot last year, and who will be opening his own restaurant concept, Janse & Co, in December – will prepare a 6-course Chef’s Table dinner for 50 people at Littlegig.
“The chef’s table is the best experience for the foodie festival-goer – a magical feast in the forest, a moment of fantasy with great food and great company. An incredible memory.”
– Hannerie Visser, studio-H
