Flatdogs Camp receives chef training for their à la carte restaurant

Flatdogs Camp welcomed chef trainer Nicky Bryden back to further improve their unique à la carte menu. Nicky spent 10 days in the camp kitchen where she worked with nine chefs to expand on their existing skills. She focused on new recipes and working on different styles of presentation, which has helped to improve the safari camp’s overall restaurant experience.

The camp is positioned in a remote location just outside of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, making it a real challenge to run an a la carte restaurant with such a wide variety of options. Yearly training with Nicky enables Flatdogs to continue improving their menu and keep ideas fresh to ensure the successful running of the restaurant out in the African bush. As well as new recipes and presentation, Nicky and the chefs focused on producing separate dietary menus for guests such as gluten free and vegan menus, and how to get the best out of the fantastic produce we source locally.

Ade Coley, Flatdogs’ owner said “We pride ourselves on offering our guests high-standard food from our à la carte restaurant, which is quite an unusual set-up for a safari camp. Guests can choose what they want to eat, when they want to eat it, and know they are supporting local producers when doing so! Having Nicky here with us training our chefs helps us keep up with new food trends and different methods of cooking”.
