What is a passport menu?

Whether you're a world traveler or a homebody, an international passport dining menu is the perfect way to explore new flavors and expand your culinary horizons.

How does the menu creation process work?

When curating a passport menu, our Certified Master Chefs take into consideration a variety of factors in order to create a cohesive and exciting private dining experience for you. The first step is to choose a variety of cuisines that will be represented on the menu, taking into account your cuisine, ingredient, and allergen preference data provided to us in your pre-event questionnaire. Your chef will then research and curate a list of traditional or modern fusion style dishes and flavors of each requested cuisine, ensuring that each dish is either authentic and true to its origins or a fun, fresh, fusion of multiple flavors and styles.

A draft passport menu will be emailed to you, once the initial dishes have been chosen by your chef. We always consider the availability of ingredients and the seasonality of certain dishes and ingredients, to ensure that your fully custom-tailored menu is both delicious and able to be executed.

Share the concept menu with your guests. If there are any revisions necessary, we're happy to revise until the menu is perfect for you & your guests. The end result will be a passport menu that takes you on a culinary journey around the world, featuring sights, smells, and flavors that transport you to different countries with every bite.

How many courses can we enjoy?

One of the great things about a passport menu dining experience is that there are virtually no limits to the number of courses or types of cuisine you can enjoy. Unlike a traditional dinner party, which typically consists of a few courses, a passport dining menu can feature a wide variety of dishes from different regions of the world. Each course may highlight different ingredients, flavors, and cooking techniques, offering a unique culinary journey for the diners.

This type of dining experience allows for maximum exploration and experimentation with different cuisines and dishes, as there are no rules or limitations on the number of courses that can be served.

Also perfect for a corporate or networking style of event, diners will discuss and compare the flavors and how they complement each other.
