Book of the week

The Food of Spain

Claudia Roden’s newest book, recently  released. She travelled to every corner of the country in order to put out this 600-page textbook – from tomato bread from Catalan, a verity of  gaspachos,  seafood paella and Almond cake, all the classics are there, as well as an exciting array of lesser-known dishes.  The book is also full of notes on everything from pastries and confectionery to the  hidden world of cloistered nuns. You get history, geography, and culture plus recipes, all in one fascinating volume, a real tome of a book. It is a book that we will definitely be using as a constant source of reference at Wickedfood Earth. ….Click Here for reviews of all our cookbook reviews.

Recipes of the week:

Almond Cake

There are almond cakes from all parts of Spain, but this one is special. Pilgrims and tourists who visit the great Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, where the relics of the apostle Saint James are believed to be buried, see the cake in the windows of every pastry shop and restaurant. It is usually marked with the shape of the cross of the Order of Santiago. This deliciously moist and fragrant homey version is without a base. ….Click Here for all our recipes.

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