Portuguese teambuilding cooking class 06/05/09

When Wickedfood Cooking School in Johannesburg hosted the 2nd team building cooking class for Discovery, we were slightly concerned when only a handful of people arrived instead of the full number who had confirmed. But as everyone started to put their aprons on, without any help required, I felt a little more re-assured and hopeful that there were a couple of keen cooks in the mix. I wasn’t disappointed, as everyone dived into the Portuguese dishes with enthusiasm and a willingness to soak up all the information on hand. Mino being the “rose amongst the thorns” decided to be in charge of the grilled salad and the Crème Caramel and did a fantastic job in showing the ladies that men can do two things at once. We started with Rhoda’s excellent Kale soup followed by the main course of Lolly’s fragrant Bay Leaf Potatoes, Maria’s excellent Chicken Peri-Peri and Vivian’s Chicken Livers which were amazing with just the right amount of chillies according to Mino (which I have to agree with). All those who participated in this Team building cooking class had a great time and despite the limited number of hands everyone worked really well as a team and therefore the proof was in the pudding.

Wickedfood Cooking School in Johannesburg runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios. Cookery classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). This team building venue is also popular for corporate events and private functions – team building cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.

Our cooking classes are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests. For corporate groups and team building cooking classes these classes are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
