Hi all,

At last, the World Cup is a over. Hopefully we can once again get on with business.  We had some great individual classes during the World Cup, and hope to continue these for the rest of the year.  Many of our cooking classes for individuals are filling up quickly, our sushi making class is already  fully booked for next week.  Should you however wish to do a sushi making class, please contact the school and they will place you on a waiting list for the next class. Should we have enough enquiries, we will run another class.

We also have a specialist database and we advise people on these databases when the next class that they are interested in, comes up. Please contact the school should you wish to be placed on the data list, together with your interests.

The August  programme for individuals is now up on our website.

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.

As the OAP who baked cannabis cakes to ease her aches and pains and those of her disabled friends, Pat Tabram became something of a celebrity. Now, about to be sentenced for her crimes, she explains why she is willing to go to jail to continue doing it Click Here to read the full article .

Seafood Laksa

A laksa is the closest one will get to a hearty warming Southeast Asian soup.  It comes in many guises.  Once you have mastered this recipe substitute the seafood for chunky vegetables or chicken breasts. Click Here for the recipe.

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 – teambuilding 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.
