We’re all told from an early age not to play with our food… but heck, that’s half the fun.
Doesn’t it make your flesh crawl when you see some foodie snob at work?
Pursing their lips, noses upturned, inspecting their food like Hamlet does Yoric.
It’s food, there to be eaten and, if you’re lucky, enjoyed.
And that’s exactly what you get with Le Petit Chef. Sounds fun already, eh?
I met the Wee Cook and his pals at Le Grand Bistro on the inaugural Celebrity Edge on the high seas to the Bahamas last year.
Now we’ve all been around open kitchens but this takes you from farm to fork.
TableMation at Le Grand Bistro on the $1bn ship sees the food prep played out on your table top by a cast of mini-animated characters.
They are beamed onto your plate with our little friends rounding up their animals from in this case the Italian countryside.
The detail, the chatter and the humour will have your captivated.
And then magically the real human waiter, the one you can pinch, takes the food they have prepared to your plate.
I have never had so much fun with ravioli.
Equally they have Chinese and French tableaux to enjoy too. See http://www.lepetitchef.com, http://www.celebritycruises.ie,
And my review of Edge, https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/im-a-celebrity-get-me-out-to-here/
Cruise ships have food at their heart and they’re fun when you’re not in a bun fight at the breakfast buffet.
Filipino chef Eric had us all playing along on Independence of the Seas with the Teppanyaki.
He makes egg fried rice and all sorts, using his chef’s hat as a prop to bring chicks out of the hat.
And rattling those pots and pans and leading us all in a sing-song.
And the food tastes all the better for it. See my review https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/a-royal-party/.
