Outdoor cooking has progressed tremendously from our forefathers who simply built a fire, put a few rocks around it, maybe used a grid, and threw a few chunks of meat on to the fire. These days, things have become much more sophisticated with a wide variety of built-in barbecues, kettlebraais and gas barbecues on the market.

Whether it’s a Cadac, Weber, or any other make of Kettlebraai, once you master the finer points of cooking in these outdoor charcoal ovens, you will be amazed at how easy it is to produce perfectly cooked roasts with very little effort.

In this workshop, we look at four classic Sunday roasts, whole chickens, beef rib roasts, leg of lamb and pork. Not only will we share the secrets of how to cook each of these roasts to absolute perfection, but we will also teach you how to make delicious side sauces to accompany each roast. At the end of the class we will sit down and enjoy a scrumptious feast, sampling each of the roasts and side sauces, together with seasonal vegetables and dessert.
