Chef Garcia’s ultimate gastronomic experience starts with cocktails at the ballroom foyer and first few main courses with wines at the ballroom. Then, guests are ushered in batches to an intimate and interactive dining experience with Chef Garcia himself at the “sublimotion,” room: Immerse in a special room with wall-to-wall LED screen showing alternate videos of The Little Prince, sceneries of the shore and ocean, and element of fire. Chef Garcia demonstrates his innovative techniques in preparing avant-garde cuisine in this culinary theatre. Guests also get a chance to meet and interact with Chef Garcia up close.
After the “sublimotion” room, bask in “The Little Prince landscape.” Be transported in a contemporary recreation of the Sahara desert and mountain area with a showcase of Impy Pilapil’s modern abstract sculptures representing nature. Enjoy refreshments and freshly-sliced jamon serrano and tapas in this room. The culinary voyage continues back to the main banquet reception where the rest of the dishes inspired by The Little Prince are served.
