Wickedfood Cooking School is an ideal venue for corporate entertaining, whether it be team building, a relaxing way of rewarding staff, building relationships with customers, or getting to know colleagues. In anticipation of the world cup, for those who are not particularly interested in soccer, but still want to get into the spirit of things, from now until the end of July Wickedfood Cooking School has developed a unique competition cooking concept, the 2010 Wickedfood Culinary World Cup Challenge.
2010 Wickedfood Culinary World Cup Challenge
Wickedfood Cooking School has identified the 10 participating soccer teams with the most interesting cuisine and drawn up a representative 6-dish menu for each national team. The class is divided into two groups, each representing one of these national teams, and cooks the relevant menu. We supply the ingredients and recipes for each team. Apart from the fun aspect, this is also a novel way of entertaining clients, a great form of teambuilding, or ideal opportunity of assessing various staff members’ abilities to work together and solve common problems. Once all the dishes are cooked, our judging panel, will choose the winning team and then the participants sit down and enjoy the 2 respective meals they have prepared.
What is included in the price?
- A set of recipes for each participant to take home;
- All ingredients and the use of aprons to wear while cooking (we also have branded aprons for sale and with enough lead-in time can have these embroidered with company logos);
- Teas, coffees (on request) and soft drinks in the morning classes; limited white and red house wine by the glass, and soft drinks in the evening classes;
- The meal at the end. Bring only your enthusiasm.
About Wickedfood Cooking Schools
(see our website for more information)
Wickedfood Cooking School is an educational facility, offering tuition in a wide range of culinary skills to the public and corporate world in a fun, safe environment. We run classes (subject to a minimum of 12 people) throughout the year at our purpose-built cooking studios, in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week. The venue is also available for corporate and private functions – 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 these classes are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
Our first classes were run from restaurant premises in Illovo in October 2001. In May 2002, the school was moved to a purpose-built kitchen in Fourways. Our newest school opened in Sunninghill in August 2007. The school can accommodate up to 60, in hands-on classes in state-of-the-art, purpose-built, teaching kitchens and offer over 30 classes (including special halaal options) specifically for the corporate and group market.
See the Programme section on our website for a list of the wide variety of classes available.
