On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen by Harold McGee is the most widely quoted culinary work in English. It is a kitchen classic, hailed by Time magazine as “a minor masterpiece” when it first appeared in 1984. The book is the bible to which food lovers and professional chefs worldwide turn for an understanding of where our foods come from, what exactly they’re made of, and how cooking transforms them into something new and delicious. At Wickedfood Cooking School it is a regular source of reference when developing a new recipe for a cooking class.
Wickedfood Cooking School runs cooking classes throughout the year at its Johannesburg purpose-built cooking studios. 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.
