Q: Where can i buy Lard/Tallow?

A: With regards to our article in the latest news letter about rendering fat and where to buy it, We use holsum (Vegetable fat) in cooking mainly in pastry’s and pie shells and that is available in most of the local name brand stores. Tallow (rendered from beef or mutton fat) is not often found in your big stores but can be bought from braeside butchery, Give them a call and if you can give them a day or two notice they will gladly help you out.

I hope this helps.

Wickedfood Cooking school runs Johannesburg cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios. Cooking lessons 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 teambuilding cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
