It is really gratifying to see the number of well produced world standard cookbooks that are starting to be published in South Africa. Prickly pears & pomegranates is top of that pile. It not only has a number of scrumptious recipes in it, it is also beautifully photographed and laid out, a great present. Later in the year, Wickedfood cooking school will be using it as our cookbook of the month, watch out for a great evening.

Wickedfood Cooking School

Sunninghill – (011) 234-3252

Boksburg – (011) 823-5365

Runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios. 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 – 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 classes are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
