Matt Manning’s One Ingredient Evenings
One Ingredient is an interactive monthly dining experience hosted at Food Corp’s amazing and edgy 7th Floor venue, and is designed for those who are as excited about what goes in to creating a beautiful dish, as they are about eating it.
The concept is simple: each month, Matt selects one ingredient that features across five different courses (including canapes on arrival), each carefully paired with a premium wine from a partnering wine estate. The star ingredient is selected based on its versatility and seasonal availability. Only 20 seats are available per dinner, keeping the experience intimate but very festive.
After the canapes and amuses bouches are served, guests are called on to participate. Matt gives a demonstration of the next two courses, which guests then re-create in groups. Finally, guests are given the opportunity to sit back and relax while dessert is served to them.
Matt insists on only using ingredients of the utmost quality, and sources his produce from local suppliers as far as possible.
The cost is R650 per person and places are available on a first come first serve basis. There are only 20 seats at each dinner so do book in advance to avoid disappointment. Please note that your booking is only secure once payment has been received.
