Hi all,

Welcome to the first Wickedfood alternate newsletter. Following our recent survey, half of our readers called for a newsletter to be sent every alternate week as opposed to every week. So in a bid to try to service all our clients we have decided to write two different newsletters, the regular newsletter you have been receiving (yet sent out every 2nd week now) and an ‘Alternate Newsletter’ which will be solely published on our blog.

The ‘Alternate Newsletter’ will focus more on going green, being proudly South African, more tips and tricks, more competitions and much much more. Our aim is to give you confidence in the kitchen while being aware of the impact your kitchen can have on the environment.

Find us on Facebook and Twitter – just search for Wickedfood and you will find us. We update the blog on a daily basis and publish it through Facebook and Twitter.

Awesome website of the week: The well respected Woman’s and Men’s Health magazines are digitally dishing out advise on health, wealth and everything in between.

Food tip of the week: Even the most rugged men can’t help themselves when cutting onions. I always explain to our students you need one of three things to prevent you from crying: 1. Wear a snorkel and goggle 2. Wear contact lenses or 3. Wash your onions once they have been peeled and once cut, leave them in water until ready to cook.

Food Joke: McDonalds – Driving through Oklahoma, my husband and I went out of our way to stop at what was billed as the largest McDonalds in the world.
 However, we were less than thrilled when an employee addressed everyone over the intercom: “Attention, world’s largest McDonalds’ customers.”

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.
