Cooking Classes

We offer casual and very entertaining cooking classes for the novice as well as more advanced cooks.


Our approach is creative, innovative and obsessive about local, sustainably sourced and ethically produced ingredients. We offer a wide range of options from local typical South African cooking to Japanese and Peruvian styles. It’s all about creativity and an open mind.


Our classes are very relaxed and informative, very hands on and interactive. Join us for a fun-filled Karoo cooking experience.


We offer half-day or full day courses as well as longer more specialised courses which require a couple of days.
