500g waxy potatoes
2 cloves garlic
2 lemons
4T marjoram leaves
Extra virgin olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Scrub and cut the potatoes in half lengthways, and each half  lengthways again. Peel and chop the garlic.
  3. Cut the lemons in half lengthways, and each half into three and each third into half. Put in a bowl with the potatoes, squeezing the juice out of the lemon pieces with your hands as you mix.
  4. Add the garlic, marjoram, salt and pepper and enough olive oil to moisten well. Tip into an ovenproof dish.
  5. Roast for ½ hour, until they are cooked and brown. Halfway through, turn the pieces over.

Wickedfood Cooking School runs Johannesburg cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios in Sunninghill. Cookery classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people).

Our cooking classes are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes.

For corporate groups and teambuilding cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
