Country Lunches – 2017

On selected Sundays and Public Holidays Wickedfood Earth Farm prepares from a 4-course banquet to tasting menus of up to 15-courses, with all the trimmings, using the very best local, seasonal ingredients. Each meal is built around a theme, be it a national cuisine or a seasonal ingredient.

Space for these very special exclusive events is limited to between 15 and 40 people (no children under 16), dependent on the theme, so book early to avoid disappointment. Guests will have a choice of sitting at our magnificent new communal long table, or 4 to 6 at smaller tables (or with enough lead-in time, you can book the venue for an exclusive event along one of the themes outlined below or we can build an exclusive menu for you).

A morning in the Kitchen – Spend an extra 3 hours, prior to the lunch, from ±9am, in the kitchen with Wickedfood Earth Farm team, asking questions, tasting and participating, while our team prepares the meal – limited to a maximum of 6 for a real hands-on working kitchen experience.

2017 programme

Monday 17th AprilEaster Monday Country Lunch (R250pp or R450pp to spend the morning in the kitchen, followed by lunch). Lunch from 12:00pm to ±3pm

Wickedfood Earth is part of a group of Gauteng Pedi Sheep farmers who got together to form the Magalies Pedi Group with the objective “… to preserve and promote the Pedi sheep breed and ensure its survival for future generations as a viable commercial breed….” We are preparing a special a feast featuring the meat from this fantastic ethically produced, indigenous, veld-raised sheep breed as the centre piece. The 3-course meal will have a strong North African/Middle eastern flavour, with some interesting twists, and give you some of the secrets on how we at Wickedfood Earth Farm get the best out of cooking with it.

 

Monday 1st May 12-course Autumn tasting menu, the best of veld-raised beef  (R350pp or R550pp to spend the morning in the kitchen, followed by lunch). Lunch from 12:00pm to ±3pm

At Wickedfood Earth, we believe strongly in the concept of natural farming. We have made a conscious healthier lifestyle choice. When eating meat, we opt for free range. And for beef it means veld-raised, grass-fed and finished. We run a small herd of Dexter cattle, which we slaughter, and process in-house to ensure that we have complete traceability of our meat. We then Dry-age the carcasses in a controlled environment for up to 4 weeks. This further improves the flavour of meat, by allowing the natural enzymes in the meat to break down the tissue and concentrating the flavour. This 12-course meal will showcase real nose-to-tail eating, including hot and cold starters,  a selection of our in-house cured beef products, a bone broth consommé, grilled, roasted and braised beef with seasonal vegetables, and of course, farm made dessert.
