Spend 2 nights at Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School and get an insight into the workings of our organic farm and cooking with our delicious ingredients. We specialize in produce-driven seasonal food, using ingredients grown on our farm and surrounding organic small-scale farmers, as well as veld-raised animals, including indigenous Pedi sheep, beef and free-range pork. Over the two days immerse yourself in food, including all meals, as well as participate in 2 in-depth food workshops on how to make the best of seasonal produce. 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.

First night

Arrive mid-afternoon. We’ll introduce you to classic cooking of well-aged meats (either pork, lamb or beef, whatever we’ve recently slaughtered) over an open fire, South African style, with some unique sauces and sides, matched to the meat.

Next day

After coffee and rusks, tour the food gardens, selecting organic seasonal produce to use to prepare together for a casual mezze brunch, and a 4-course gourmet dinner. Mezze brunch will include freshly baked scones that we will have made together, a delicious farm-cured meat platter, eggs, and preserves.

After an afternoon siesta we’ll get together again and prepare dinner:

  • the starter could be a fresh vegetable soup, grilled figs wrapped in prosciutto, or a fresh tomato tart;
  • first course – a light pasta, grilled asparagus with a farm butter sauce, or maybe a pâté or terrine;
  • the main course will be a real feast, including our special meat, maybe a slow roast lamb shank or pan-fried well-aged beef with a port and red wine sauce, steamed mealie bread, potato gratin or something more traditional like samp and beans, and of course farm-fresh cooked vegetables or salad;
  • dessert, always a highlight on the farm from berry ice cream and seasonal fruit to tarts, and hearty winter-baked puddings with local clotted cream.

Final day

Take a guided tour around the farm. Then back to the kitchen for a final breakfast – Farm-baked bread, eggs Benedict farm style, jam with farm butter, and a selection of cold meats, preserves and pickles.

We can also tailor make an experience, especially for you. For further information on any of the food experiences we offer, as well as costings, please contact:

  • As these are hands-on classes, we suggest that participants come comfortably dressed, preferably in jeans/shorts and T-shirt, with flat gym shoes, as leather soles are inclined to slip.
