Green ideas for your kitchen? Kitchen GardenKitchen Garden is a company that is totally dedicated to the research and development of means to promote good nutrition and the usage of sprouts & herbs in every home. Joseph Feigelson, inventor, eco-preneur and horticulturist has developed a system to allow anyone to grow sprouts at home with a low-cost kit for easy home sprouting.

You needn’t worry about the climate or weather with Kitchen Garden. It’s the ultimate self-sufficiency garden for anyone desiring a reliable supply of pesticide-free, high fibre, vitamin/mineral/enzyme-rich, energizing fresh food.

The custom designed container stand keeps the growing containers organized while providing light and proper drainage. The correct alignment of the drainage allows the moisture to be “trapped” in the seed due to the hygroscopic nature of the seeds and the surface of the growing container and this in turn causes the seeds to sprout and grow.

Awesome website of the week: is the restaurant guide we have all been waiting for.

Did YOU have a good time, what do YOU think about the food, did it meet YOUR expectation and are YOU going back? Fellow diners want to share YOUR experience, good bad or indifferent, before spending their hard earned bucks!!!

As with every service provider in the world, stuff happens; so the restaurant will be given the opportunity to recover and make good on their reputation, by fixing the problem.

But they also need to know when they’re doing right and that’s what Rate That Restaurant is about, giving YOU, the consumer, first-hand information so YOU can make an informed choice.

Rate That Restaurant

Food Joke: A waitress is explaining to a guest in the restaurant that the speciality of the day is calf tongue in beautiful port wine sauce. The guest shakes his head and says, “I don’t want anything that comes from an animal’s mouth, just give me some eggs.”

The Wickedfood Team

Wickedfood Cooking School runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studio. 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 team building cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
