We often see the phrase “like no other” in Malaysian media. You could even say it’s overused to the point of becoming almost meaningless. But in the case of “How to Become the World’s Greatest Chef” by Le Petit Chef, the new culinary concept at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, it really is entirely fitting. We doubt you’ve seen anything quite like this before, and there really is no other experience like this (at least that we know of) in Kuala Lumpur.

Get ready for an engaging dining experience that transcends the ordinary. Le Petit Chef, the world’s tiniest French chef standing at just 6cm tall, is making a triumphant return to Kuala Lumpur. Following the buzz of “Le Petit Chef In the Footsteps of Marco Polo,” this new offering is set to delight and amaze. From July 2023 onwards, prepare to embark on a chef-tastic journey at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur.


Famous artists’ styles are explored in beautifully rendered projected animations


Only the white plate is real… The depth of realism is so impressive!


Imagine a culinary show that fuses the magic of 3D animation with the culinary world. Le Petit Chef takes you on a captivating ride, sharing his life’s journey, lessons, and insights on becoming the world’s greatest chef. This innovative and immersive spectacle, brought to life by the creative minds at Skullmapping, promises an enchanting blend of visual artistry and gastronomic wonder. We visited for a preview dinner and, not really knowing what to expect, were absolutely blown away by the fun experience. Seated at a large table with a pure white tablecloth, the wonder of modern technology and human creativity combined turned it into a stunning tabletop of colour, art, animation, and entertainment. Buoyed by a talented team of chefs, servers, and even actors, this really is an immersive experience for the senses.


The multifaceted host of the evening

But it’s not just about the show; it’s also about the flavors. Executive Chef Grzegorz Odolak, lovingly known as Chef Greg, and his talented team have crafted a five-course menu that seamlessly merges European flair with local Malaysian ingredients. The result? A symphony of tastes that dances on your palate, taking you on a multisensory journey. We were so enthralled by what we were seeing unfold on our table, though, we almost forgot there was a lovely meal to enjoy, as well!


The first lesson focuses on the humble tomato


As you enjoy the immersive entertainment, don’t forget to eat!


Our adventure began with the first lesson: “Tomato.” Le Petit Chef outlined a bit of the history of food, with the humble tomato as the star. From there, we moved into the “Art of Plating,” inspired by the works of painter Kandinsky. Lessons unfolded, each – we were told – “a delightful chapter in your journey towards culinary mastery.” And let’s not forget the desserts – the ultimate test. Le Petit Chef challenged us to create a decadent Valrhona 64% Manjari Chocolate Verrine with Earl Grey jelly, which then served as a sweet finale to our gourmet expedition. As our adventure came to an end, we each got a little scroll, proudly bearing the title of “Trainee to The World’s Greatest Chef.”

The experience really is something unique, and the sheer spectacle of technology, precision projection and animation, entertainment, and a five-course meal all being blended together so seamlessly was truly a delight to behold. We must say, however, that photos simply cannot replicate the enjoyment of being there, and still images really do sell this experience well short. Just keep in mind that what you’re seeing in these photos is a white tablecloth, a white plate, utensils, and of course, some actual food here and there. Everything else is virtual, and it’s just a good time all around.
