Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School, is located on a working farm in the country within the Magalies Meander Tourism area, under 60km from Fourways, Midrand and Centurion. Come relax with us in our internationally recognized food garden and purpose built 4-station teaching kitchen.

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, milestone birthday or a group of friends who want to spend some quality time together in the kitchen, over the last 20 years, Wickedfood Cooking School has been tailor-making relaxed food-related functions for clients.

Our cooking classes are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They never feel threatened or moved outside their comfort zone as in many other team building activities. Cooking Classes are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to socialise. For corporate groups these cooking classes are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
