COOKING CLASSES

(Eastern Cape)

 

Merry Mayonnaise R150 per person (Min. 5 people / Max. 10 people)

In this 3-hour hands-on class, we briefly look at the interesting history of mayonnaise; we learn how to make authentic, traditional standard and vegan mayonnaises (by hand only), and we look at many of their variations; we look at how we can use mayonnaise and we prepare various hors-d’oeuvres for the occasion. No one leaves the class until they know how to make mayonnaise from scratch. Making mayonnaise, a life-skill, only takes a few minutes to complete, whether on a camping trip (with no electricity), at home or at friends’ places, with always excellent results: a diverse sauce for cold starters and mains.

 

Ramequin Revolution R350 per person (Min. 5 people / Max. 10 people)

In this 3-hour class, we learn how to make a complete meal served in three ramequins: the classy cheese soufflé as a starter, the elegant fish mousseline as a main and the dramatic baked Alaska as a dessert. These three easy-to-make dishes are simple yet always impress. To make these dishes, you learn about béchamel, mousse, meringue, ice-cream and swiss roll.

 

Crazy Curry R200 per person (Min. 5 people / Max. 10 people)

In this three-hour hands-on class, we learn how to make two different styles of curry from scratch: a creamy, North-Indian style chicken curry, and a vegan/vegetarian cashew nut ball curry. Both styles can be adapted to use different meats or vegetables. Before cooking, we learn about some of the spices used in curry-making.

 

Persian Rice & Dhal R200 per person (Min. 5 people / Max. 10 people)

In this three-hour hands-on class, we combine Persian excellence with Indian distinction, and learn how to make the perfect shivid polo, a Persian basmati and dill rice dish with tahdig (crispy crust of potatoes fried at the bottom of the rice dish), and the most flavourful dhal. This meal combination will have your vegan and vegetarian table guests beg for more.
