“….. Our Lebanese food experience over the weekend was unique and special …. Mike and Cilla are great hosts and the farm is a lovely setting to rest and unwind..…” – Petronel, Tripadvisor

Spend a relaxing one to two nights together with a half day of pure food indulgence at our working organic farm, Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School. We’ll teach you to cook food from one of our in-depth cuisine driven Foods of the World experiences. Together, in 1 hands-on master-class workshops, we will explore one of the different cooking styles from around the world, from Thai Street Market Food, to the fresh healthy flavours of the Vietnamese kitchen; Chinese dim sum; tagines, couscous and spices of North Africa; Food of Lebanon; Indian curries; Italian pasta making and beyond; the secrets of classic French food; the flavours of Mexico; or any other world cuisine (we reserve the right to allow additional people to join either of cooking classes, making a total of 8 people maximum for the either workshop).

The programme

We are flexible on how we run these workshops and cooking classes and can tailor make a programme to fit your groups needs. From experience however we know that the programme below is well balanced, giving enough time in both the kitchen, as well as to relax, enjoy the farm life and of course delicious food. Please note we are also able to develop special vegetarian and vegan workshops, with all food for the duration of the experience being vegetarian and/or vegan. 

We suggest the following:

First night – optional check-in late afternoon, or early evening. Enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants (or we can make a special 3-course dinner price on request).

Day 1 – hearty farm breakfast (or arrive at ±8:30 – 9 am – check-in) ;

  • ±10am or 3:30 pm – run through the menu and start the cooking workshop followed by lunch or dinner.

Day 2

  • ±8:30am – hearty farm breakfast and then depart (checkout 10 am).

Once you’ve decided on a theme, let Cilla know and we’ll work out a more detailed programme. Please also let us know upfront if you have any food allergies or dislikes.

Please note we are not licenced and you are welcome to bring your own drinks and ice, including soft drinks. We supply glasses.

Our cooking style at Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School has its roots in Africa, with multi-ethnic world influences, showcasing the cultural cuisines of the various immigrants who settled and cooked in the area over the last 400-odd years. For the past 30 years, Mike has been sharing his food passion with visitors from around the world. As an award-winning photo journalist, renowned cook and food anthropologist he has travelled extensively to explore food influences and cooking styles of different cultures. He has received many accolades over the years including Slow Food’s Food Heroes award for “development of rare breeds and education on sustainable food and farming.” In 2018 he was invited to become a member of Slow Food Chefs’ Alliance, South Africa. In this series of workshops, Mike shares these experiences with you, as well as giving you his in-depth philosophy for humane sustainable food practices. All cooking classes and food workshops are hands-on in our custom-built teaching kitchen.
