Sizzling food events are hot and happening at “The Food Studio.”

The gem collection in Walmer is growing. Lecia de Villiers and Andrew Broughton, the owners of  “The Food Studio” have brought an exciting new twist to the world of food experiences, a welcome new dimension to dining in Port Elizabeth. They share a passion for fine food and cooking and aim to bring people together simply by having them socialize in the kitchen while preparing, cooking and enjoying fine food.

Their kitchen was launched in September 2017 with their first trial experience on 15 July 2017. Since the launch The Food Studio has been abuzz with creative dining events, themed evenings, food demonstrations by chefs and cooks, private dining and food pairing experiences. Their ‘in house’ chefs are Vuyani Nkwali and Mike Mallet with the recent addition of Chef Erika Grebe.

The Food Studio can accommodate 12 to 40 people, smaller groups around the kitchen table and larger groups can spread into the dining area and outside deck area. It is not a restaurant operating on a daily basis, it is rather a ‘food event’ company offering a variety of food-related functions custom made to your requirements, per bookings only. They advertise regular food events; past events have been these sizzlers:
Ultimate Meat Feast
Seafood Extravaganza
All things cheezy!
Culinary Kids at The Food Studio
Couples Sharing Night
An evening with Vuyani Nkwali
Taste Sensation
All Things Chocolate

We attended the ‘All Things Chocolate’ event and enjoyed every second of the evening and devoured every last crumb of the decadent meals served. It was a sheer delight to have the chefs in the kitchen and cooking for us, making it a memorable evening of fun and fine dining with special friends.
