Things are never quiet on the farm. During May Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School ran an extremely successful Charcuterie workshop.  We have had so much interest that we plan another series of workshops in July. As winter is now firmly here, we have started with our annual meat curing. Over the past few weeks we have made cold smoked belly and loin bacon as well as our popular salami. They should be ready by the mid July ± 1kg @ R200 each. To pre-order email earth@wickedfood.co.za.

The end of June sees midwinter upon us. To celebrate the changing of seasons, don’t forget our Mid -Winter feast.
