Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School is offering a very special Valentines day experience, on a choice of two days:

  • Saturday 13 February or;
  • Sunday 14 February.

Spend the day in the country, with a special person in your life, enjoying scrumptious food and good company. The day will include a hands-on cooking demonstration where we show you the elements of preparing a delicious 4-course meal and accompaniments, as well as tips on plating the various courses – you will also receive comprehensive recipe notes. This will be followed by a gourmet 4-course sit-down lunch accompanied by a complimentary glass of sparkling wine with the starters, and a glass of white wine with the main course (you are also welcome to bring your own special drinks for the occasion).


The programme for each of the days is as follows:
