‘Le Petit Chef™ 3D Dining Experience at Copia’ pairs technology with fine-dining for a one-of-a-kind experience at this culinary destination in downtown Napa

The CIA at Copia, the premier destination for food lovers, founded and operated by non-profit college The Culinary Institute of America, is thrilled to announce a new interactive 3D dinner show, ‘Le Petit Chef™” in collaboration with the world-renowned artists of Skullmapping™ and presented by TableMation™.

The CIA at Copia is the first venue on the West Coast, and only the second venue in the entire country, to house this experience. It will continue to do so for the duration of 2019, marking the longest residency of Le Petit Chef at any venue. The show utilizes groundbreaking 3D technology, and takes guests on an enchanting culinary journey around the globe. Beginning March 15, diners can book the experience for Thursday, Friday, or Saturday at 6:00pm with limited seating at each, and the first two weeks already sold out.

‘Le Petit Chef™ 3D Dining Experience at Copia’ is an immersive two-hour dining show that tells the story of the world’s smallest chef following the route of Marco Polo. Offering visual storytelling through different flavors, ingredients, sights, sounds and tastes, the show’s six-course menu will wow guests as they are taken on a global journey across the regions visited by the legendary traveler. The remarkable show is complimented by a unique gastronomic experience, designed by CIA-trained chefs, with dishes incorporating spices found along Marco Polo’s route with a Napa Valley-twist.
