Green ideas for your kitchen? Natural Cleaners for Your Home: For a healthier greener home, consider using more natural cleaners than the commercial ones. Unfortunately, the ever-expanding arsenal of home cleaning products now includes several dangerous weapons, loaded with harsh cleansing agents like bleach, ammonia and acids. These chemicals can produce indoor air pollution by off-gassing toxic fumes that can irritate eyes and lungs. (Children and pets are most at risk.)  Even the biggest messes and toughest stains can be attacked effectively with baking soda, borax, lemon juice and other simple ingredients, but without the harmful side effects. click here for more

Awesome website of the week: Wickedfood Cooking school has just launched its new and improved website. Its fresh, clean and incredibly easy to navigate. We have gone through all the comments given via our survey from our loyal foodie followers, and based on this we have designed a website which we are really excited about. Our new website also gives us the power to update it whenever we want and therefore we can keep it new and interesting as well as keeping it fresh with content. So bookmark the new site and visit often to see whats new. Watch this space!

Food Joke: A businessman had arranged an important formal dinner party at his home where they were going to serve stuffed whole baked fish as the main course. While the guests were eating the appetizer, the cook came to the host and whispered “Please come urgently to the kitchen.” The host went to the kitchen where the cook explained that while she was serving the starter, the cat ate a big chunk of the fish which they were going to serve. The host said, “Just fill the hole with stuffing and turn the other side up, nobody will notice.” The fish was served and when they were nearly finished eating, the host was again called to the kitchen. The cook said, “The cat is dead!” The host rushed back to the dinner party and apologized, “Something was wrong with the fish and everyone must have their stomachs pumped out at the hospital.” When they came back everything was still fine and the host went to ask the cook, “Where is the cat?” “Oh,” said the chef, “The cat is still by the road where the truck ran it down!”

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.
