In his latest cookbook, Gordon Ramsay’s Great British Pub Food, he teams up with Mark Sargeant to look at some of the best British pub cooking. Packed full of mouthwatering, hearty, traditional recipes, this book is perfect for relaxed, homely and comforting cooking. Pubs were once a place where you could always guarantee good, simple, cheap food and a great Sunday roast. But when the steak houses and fast food chains arrived in the UK, the good home cooking from the pub kitchens was replaced with tasteless, defrosted meals. Then came the gastropubs, which weren’t much better, serving mediocre food at restaurant prices.
When Gordon Ramsay and Mark Sargeant set up the Gordon Ramsay pubs in London they wanted to reintroduce some of these simple but delicious British classics, and to serve them at affordable pub prices. Dishes like rich, hearty Chicken and Smoked Bacon Pie, mouth-watering Gloucestershire Sausages with Grainy Mustard Mash and Red Onion Marmalade and indulgent Treacle Tart – classics that have stood the test of time. Now Gordon has gathered his favourite British recipes into one sumptuous collection.
Wickedfood Cooking School runs Johannesburg cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios. We offer a variety of Cooking Lessons. Classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). The venue is also popular for corporate events and private functions – team building cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.
Our 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.
