Hi all, in this weeks newsletter we discuss the Big Green Cooking Rules (which are surprisingly easy, but you knew that) as well as highlighting the Cape Town based company Living Green. Sam Adams, the owner and director of Living Green, has over ten years experience in alternative green solutions across a number of sectors and because of this Sam has become a sought after asset in the green community of South Africa. So why not take a leaf from his tree…

Big Green Cooking Rules
• 1. Prepare plant-based meals
• 2. Be an energy-wise cook.
• 4. Enjoy fresh foods naturally and simply prepared.
• 5. Go organic and eco-conscious when you can.
• 6. Buy locally when logical.
• 7. Practice the 4Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, and Recycle.
• 8. Be realistic.
And, though it’s not a “rule,” have fun while cooking.

Start Living Green
Living Green has been in operation since November 2008, providing green coaching services to both the domestic and business sector.
The first focus is on guiding our clients through the large number of green options available on the market. Our priority is to support the client in choosing the most suitable product for their need and budget. We have the experience to know what really benefits the environment.
The second focus is on carefully selecting natural and organic products for retail to our clients. We choose locally manufactured products where possible, from trusted suppliers. In addition, Living Green also installs vegetable and herb gardens, compost systems, and recycling systems.

The Wickedfood Team
Wickedfood Cooking School runs classes throughout the year at its purpose-built Johannesburg cooking studio. Cooking lessons 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 cooking courses 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.
