Chantel Dartnall defines her approach as "botanical cuisine-to
feature Mother Nature on a plate, where each dish is designed to reflect the beauty, balance, harmony and purity that you find in nature." It's about
capturing nature's nuances, but it's also about studying the medicinal properties of the herbs and flowers she includes in the menu, to aid in digestion,
promote blood circulation and a general feeling of wellbeing.
She believes it is vital to serve visually appealing dishes that tell a story and
start stimulating diners' senses from the moment the food arrives at the table.
"Each dish is designed to reflect the beauty, balance,
harmony and purity that you find in nature".
There is a subliminal rhythm to the progression of her courses. Slowly, like a heartbeat,
it taps into your senses, growing with each new dish until you experience the continuous melody that Chantel's menus conveys. Individual creations
become instruments in a gastronomical orchestra, each with their own prominent role, following each other in the correct order, until all the elements
come together in a joyous composition, leaving you with a sense of fulfillment as the crescendo echo's a song of celebration...
