Hailed from England, Geoff's 45 years of chef experiences has assisted New Zealand to define "affordable quality cuisine".
He has left many foot prints as head chef in 5 stars hotels, such as Hilton and Sheraton. He also played a vital role on shaping the scene of kiwi's food and beverage industry. As the national cookery examiner, nobody would be crowned "chef" before passing the exam Geoff designed.
The origin of his cooking talent goes way back to when he was classmate of Reginald Dwight & Farrokh Bulsara (yes that Elton and Freddie). There were times that, Geoff acted in theatre for several internationally renowned plays (such as Trainspotting, Full Monty), while searching for his own artistic cooking style. Geoff's passion for life is second to none. Food is essential to it, and he's making the quintessential Geoff's cuisine with his continuous adaptive & re-inventing cooking style.
If Geoff's the backbone, Swiss-made Betty shall be the soul. She enjoys connecting with people. At Le Chat Noir, you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend. Betty loves the idea of service without servility. It's that simple, and that spontaneous.
You don't need to understand cats behavior nor to speak feline at Le Chat Noir. The black cat will come to seek your attention once entered. Our excellent, good natured staff are attentive and lovable. No need to read the hips to feel the wonderful black cats spirit.
Come and feel the love. You will get as much TLC ( Tender Loving Care ) as you deserve.
A crêpe or crepe is a type of very thin pancake, usually made from wheat flour (crêpes de Froment) or buckwheat flour (galettes). The word is of French origin, deriving from the Latin crispa, meaning "curled".
Making of Crêpe
Crêpes are made by pouring a thin liquid batter onto a flat circular hot plate, with a trace of butter on the plate's surface. The batter is spread evenly over the cooking surface of the plate either by distributing the batter with an offset spatula.
Le Chat Noir Crêpe
Crêpes are served with a variety of fillings, from the most simple with only sugar to flambéed crêpes Suzette or elaborate savoury fillings.
At Le Chat Noir, crêpes are wrapped with love.
