Lannice Snyman was for many years one of the champions of the South African food industry. She’s been championing good food for years, not only in an area of mouthwatering cookbooks, but also serving on a number of committees, including judging the world’s best restaurants , where she definitely brought more prominence to the South African restaurants’ industry. Unfortunately she passed away last year, but her memory will certainly live on in her cookbooks.

In one of her favorite books that she wrote, Posh Nosh, she shares some of her favorite recipes that she has been using overtime to entertain friends and family.  If you're looking for one book that contains many of the classics, this is it – Tomato tarts, Satay, prawn cocktailand cheese soufflé, a good selection of soups and pasta (see of recipe of the week), a good

section on fish, chicken and meat dishes, and some wicked desserts.   In addition, there is a great chapter on vegetable side dishes for main courses.  A truly great book for someone starting, especially if you're keen on entertaining.

Wickedfood Cooking School runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built Johannesburg cooking studio. Cookery 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 – teambuilding cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.

Our cooking lessons 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 events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
