Forgotten Skills of Cooking
Darina Allen runs the world renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland. While teaching students, she discovered that as a society, we have lost kitchen skills that our grandmothers had known. In her latest book Forgotten Skills of Cooking. She has spun her courses into a one book, with 700 recipes in 600 pages – it is not the type of book you would read in a meeting hall, but rather something to devour snuggled up in your most comfortable favourite chair. It’s one of those books that should stand as the sole cookbook for those who want only one book on food. For those drawn by the rural allure of sustainability and being more in control of the food that comes to your table, this book is even more of a gem. .… Click Here for more information.
Food quote of the week
“Every time we go to the supermarket, an increasing number of items are oven-ready or ready-to-eat: cheese is grated, mushrooms sliced, fruit segmented — I swear, if they sold toast we’d buy it.” – Darina Allen
In celebration of St Patrick's day and a cookbook of the week, we have two interesting recipes.
Irish beef stew – a simple yet hearty stew, full of goodness, perfect for the cooler weather that we're having every now and again.
Irish soda bread – an easy bread recipe, for when you want bread in a hurry – it's ready in less than an hour.

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.
