River-CafeOver the last twenty years, Rose and Ruth have been at the helm of one of the iconic London restaurants, River Cafe, where a variety of the world’s top chefs and TV personalities have cut their teeth, including  Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.  Their latest book, River Cafe Classic Italian Cookbook, is Rose and Ruth’s personal interpretation of Italian home recipes, supported by some beautiful photography. If you are even remotely interested in Italian Cooking, this book is truly inspirational.  You will need to put it down periodically to shoot off to the shops to get ingredients to prepare a variety of the mouthwatering simple recipes.  At Wickedfood Cooking School, we will definitely be using this book as inspiration for an upcoming Italian Cooking Class.

Wickedfood Cooking School

Sunninghill – (011) 234-3252 sunninghill@wickedfood.co.za

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