Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School

Xmas Group programme 2014

 

Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School has developed 2 exciting and very different Christmas menus exclusively for groups, based around seasonal ingredients. Once all the food is cooked, participants sit down and enjoy the food they have prepared, a great way of staff interaction. Book early to avoid disappointment, as dates towards the end of the year are already filling up fast. (Subject to our general terms and conditions, below.)

Classes are subject to a minimum of 10 people at Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School. We can accommodate up to 40 people of between 6 and 12 people per cooking station (see terms below), each station cooking the same dishes. An added advantage is that due to the nature of our hands-on classes, participants never feel threatened or moved outside their comfort zone, while having a lot of fun. Every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. (Subject to our general terms and conditions, below.)

 

Class format

Classes run any time during the day, at the client’s convenience, from ±09h00 onwards. While at Wickedfood Earth, clients have the exclusive use of the facilities, for either a half day (up to 4 hours, cooking class only) or a full day (up to 8 hours, cooking class and use of the lecture room). Our lecture room is fully fitted out and can seat up to 40 people comfortably.

At Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School we offer a very unique experience. All food is locally sourced, either from Wickedfood Earth itself, or from surrounding farms. All food used, apart from our Halaal chicken, is grown along organic principles.
