Solo Kitchens 2019

A new addition to the 2019 event, and in line with the "Intimate Encounters" experience which has characterized Solo Studios since inception, Solo Kitchens invites the visitor into the personal realm of some of Riebeek Valley’s finest hosts.  A very limited number of patrons will have the opportunity to be entertained in 5 private homes for dinner on Saturday 10 August, seats available only to Solo Studios Pass Holders. Look out for notification on social media and the website on how to obtain seats at these private "Chef’s Tables".
