There is always something exciting going on at The Table Bay Hotel, right in the very heart of Cape Town’s renowned Waterfront. I feel that Capetonians don’t make enough of this wonderful facility in our midst. The parking is free and safe and easy.
The Lounge with its spectacular view of Table Mountain is such a pleasant place for a meeting at any time during the day. High tea is a served each day and Bhupender ‘Bobby’ Kumar’s fabulous cakes and bakes and pastries reign supreme on the buffet table.
Always a joy to me are the floral arrangements in the hotel by Marsha Booi and Lucas Mfisi. Proteas predominate and at times the generosity of orchids in the bowls is such a joy.
Sensory journey of flavours and scents
The Table Bay celebrates the seasons in a four part sensory journey of flavours and scents. The three remaining seasonally inspired, senses-evoking dinner experiences as part of an exciting journey to create a signature fragrance for the hotel with Cape Town based bespoke fragrance perfumer, Tammy Frazer.
Each dinner, hosted personally by The Table Bay’s Executive Chef Jocelyn Myers-Adams and perfumer Tammy Frazer, will be a sensory meander of tastes, flavours and scents. The seasonally inspired dinners will be spectacularly paired with invigorating fresh and natural scents to enhance the flavours of the food and complete the sensory experience for guests. The scents will be delivered in various ways to accentuate how they are perceived while complementing the flavours and aromas of the food. From a cool hand towel and a hand dip to a fragrance-spritzed stick of candy floss and vapour, the way in which the scents are delivered will be carefully planned to enhance the experience.
Three courses will be presented with three fragrance accords at each of the remaining sensory dinners, with Myers-Adams and Frazer working closely on the scent notes that will feature in each meal. The 12 fragrance accords, aligned with the seasons and The Table Bay’s emphasis on local sourcing and fresh produce as interpreted in Myers-Adam’s unique way, will ultimately make up the signature Table Bay fragrance. Guests can book for one, or all three of the remaining sensory experiences. The dinners will be staged at The Table Bay’s lavishly furnished Atlantic on 04 June, 27 August and 29 October 2016. To preserve the intimate and interactive atmosphere of the dinners, places will be limited to 30 people so booking is essential. Cost per person is R450.00.
