At Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School we work together with our clients to develop specialised food events to suit both the occasion and their budgets. Whether it’s a team building event, corporate function, product launch, kitchen tea or milestone birthday, over the last 15 years, Wickedfood has been tailor-making food-related functions for our clients.

Some of our more popular themes include:

  • Mystery basket cook-offs – from R495pp ex VAT* – (favourite team building event, from 8 to 60 people) each team gets the same mystery basket and our specially developed seasonal recipe file with a wide choice of recipes pertaining to the supplied seasonal items. Each team works together to come up with a 6-dish menu, prepares it, and at the end, enjoys the meal they have cooked. (Click here to see how much fun these classes are.) We have many of handmade products available as corporate gifts and prizes ;

  • Street food party from R495pp ex VAT* – (fun interactive staff activity, end-of-year function, kitchen tea or milestone birthday, from 16 to 80 people). We divide the group into teams of between 2 and 10 (dependent on the group size and theme). Each team is in charge of a food stall  - to prepare, cook and present a dish for the whole group to eat and enjoy at the end. As Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School is located on a working farm we have space to spread out and is therefore the ideal venue for larger groups and outdoor cooking. Themes include:
    • Asian Street Food Market,
    • Middle East mezza,
    • Mexican fiesta.
