About Wickedfood Cooking Schools

Our first classes were run from restaurant premises in Illovo in October 2001. In May 2002, the school was moved to a purpose-built kitchen in Fourways, accommodating up to 16 students per class. Over the next 2 years the school developed a highly successful formula that is in great demand to both individual clients and the corporate environment.

A new school opened in Montecasino, Fourways, Sandton, in mid 2004. We also outgrew the school, and in August 2007, we opened a new school in Sunninghill. Wickedfood Cooking School Sunninghill was a state-of-the-art, purpose-built, teaching kitchen and offering over 30 classes specifically for the corporate and group market. The school ran successfully for 10 years with over 50 000 students passing through its doors.

In October 2013, Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School, located on a sustainable working farm, just 60km from Fourways, opened its doors, offering a totally new and unique experience. Click here for more details, and Click here to see how much fun these classes are.

“Wow!!!!! We had an awesome time and to hear that from a bunch of techies, is no average accomplishment! Nice work!  They are already talking about doing the same thing next year for team-build.  It was such a nice change for go-carts. Thanks for all the help and patience.  This team-build will be remembered and talked about for a while!”Erica


“I just wanted to extend our gratitude for all your hard work in ensuring our function was such a huge success.  You went way and beyond the call of duty, from meeting with me in your personal time after hours to giving advice as well as your great attention to detail.  Nothing was too much trouble and we appreciate your hard work. The organisation for the actual cooking and flow of event was fantastic, well run and of the highest standard, and our clients had a super evening.” – Toinette
