In December of 2019, at the prestigious La Liste Restaurant Awards in Paris, a conversation took place between multi-award-winning Chef Chantel Dartnall and three Michelin Star Chef Emmanuel Renaut. ( France). That day, a seed was planted for their mutual dream of a culinary collaboration of excellence.
A few months, and one phone call later, this dream has become a reality. On the 17th and 18th of April 2020, the South African gourmet community will have an opportunity to experience the flavours of the Megève Mountains and the Crocodile River Valley at Restaurant Mosaic in the Francolin conservancy.
This ‘Four-hands’ collaboration, forms part of an international initiative which sees various chefs from around the world pairing up for one-off occasions. These collaborations create new friendships and unique culinary experiences.
This event showcases two chefs with impressive records. As Chef Patron at Restaurant Mosaic at The Orient, Chef Dartnall has a well-established and enviable reputation. She was voted The Best Lady Chef in the World in 2017 as well as Chef of the Year at the Eat Out Awards in 2009 and 2014. French native, Chef Renaut is the proud Patron of the award-winning restaurant Flocons de Sel, in Megève and in 2012 he was crowned Chef of the Year in France and received his third Michelin star in the same year – which he has retained to present day.
Although these illustrious chefs hail from two different worlds; they share a deep reverence for nature. Both have a unique ability to draw inspiration from their surroundings and present dishes that embody the essence of the countryside.
Despite living on different continents, both Chef Dartnall and Chef Renaut are fueled by a passion for precision, quality and sophistication. It is these values, which have seen them appointed as international ambassadors for Audemars Piguet – the globally renowned Swiss luxury watch brand.
Chef Chantel Dartnall, Chef Emmanuel Renaut and Audemars Piguet are united in exploring the connection between creativity and technology, in an ongoing quest to challenge artistic excellence and technical mastery. The Four Hands Dinners represent a further pursuit of this ambition.
Prices are to be confirmed as soon as Chef Dartnall and Chef Renaut confirm their Menu for the evenings. In the meantime, please feel free to reserve your table, as space is extremely limited.
