Summary The Vineyard Hotel is a four-star deluxe hotel and conference venue, situated in an upmarket residential area in Cape Town. For over 200 years the hotel has played host to some of the most influential people in South Africa. The hotel is privately owned by the Petousis family, who are South African and of Greek heritage. In its present state, the hotel caters to its hotel guests, delegates attending a function at the hotel, and day visitors, who come to enjoy the fine dining options. There are no less than four restaurants on the property, as well as a separate menu for room service. Meals for the functions and all but one of these restaurants are prepared in the hotel's fully functional kitchen. In case B, James, a consultant and friend of executive chef, Carl van Rooyen, comes in to observe the bakery and make some recommendations. At the beginning we are told that some changes have already taken place, namely that the kitchen layout has been slightly altered and the cake of the day is no longer made by the bakery
