SecretEATS has returned to South Africa and is inviting top chefs to step out of their kitchens to a mystery location to create a once-off dining experience.

The SecretEATS events sees invited guests treated to an intimate dinner party where gourmet food and fine wine are showcased in an unusual, unexpected and awe-inspiring location. Founded in 2013, SecretEATS made waves on the dining scene by inviting guests to join thirty or so adventurous, outgoing food and wine lovers for a ‘by invitation only’ secret dining experience at an undisclosed location. SecretEATS has worked with some of the country’s top local and international chefs, including Brad Ball, Bertus Basson, James Diack, Vicky Crease, Michelle Theron, Kobus van der Merwe, Vanessa Marx and more.

Past locations have included wineland homes, stunning art galleries, private gardens, and ancient Milkwood forests. To add to the intrigue, the Secret chef and menu are only revealed upon confirmation of your password at the secret location on the day of the event.

Since mid 2016, SecretEATS South Africa has been on hiatus as the founders explored Southeast Asia, establishing the secret dining events outside of Africa. Leading the return to South Africa is SecretEATS regional event director, Darren Meltz. Darren brings a wealth of experience in marketing and hospitality and a real passion for food and wine.

“There’s something truly unique and special about meeting and connecting over a beautiful meal. Moments are shared and friendships are made. I am beyond excited to bring the enchantment of SecretEATS to our guests.” – Darren Meltz, Events Director JHB/PTA
