Cookery Classes

My hands-on, interactive classes are hosted on Saturday mornings from my home kitchen in Cape Town’s southern suburbs. They’re designed to give you the confidence to recreate impressive meals at home, to give you some creative time away from your daily routine, and to enhance your repertoire, no matter what your level of expertise. The focus is on the food of the Mediterranean and includes Lebanese, Italian and French provincial cuisine. The emphasis is on seasonal ingredients.

I am constantly working on new ideas to keep my many repeat guests entertained – you will never see the same thing on a menu twice!

Classes kick off at 09h00 with coffee and something to eat. Each one of the eight guests will be expected to prepare at least one dish. Our morning in the kitchen culminates in a delectable and generous lunch around our dining table. The day ends arounds 14h00. Included in the price are ingredients, wine and recipes.

There is no need to bring anything other than a healthy appetite. Final arrangement details will arrive via WhatsApp on the Monday prior to your class, so stay tuned after you have reserved your spot.

Please join me for a fun day in my kitchen.

Lebanese

The food of Lebanon is the food of my soul, my people and my heritage. To sit at a Lebanese table, from the simplest to the most elaborate, is to share a feast. The Lebanese love nothing more than to feed their guests and to share what they have with others. Language is never an obstacle when you speak the language of food and in my courses on the food and culture of the Levant the wonderful tale of this magical cuisine is told around a heavily laden, convivial table.

Italian

The honesty and simplicity of the food and the unbridled joy Italians derive from sharing their cuisine and their country with others had me from “Ciao!”. On every visit to this beautiful, generous country I have savoured each morsel, learning and absorbing whatever I could about their culinary bounty.  My Italian cooking experiences are a joyous ramble through favourite dishes and techniques I just love to share.

French Provincial

French Provincial cooking, in particular the food of Provence and southern France, has intrigued me since I first read ‘A Year in Provence’. I’m inspired by the precision, the presentation and the ingredient knowledge that seems the birthright of every citizen of this food-obsessed country. Whenever we visit, no matter where we are – in a tiny village, down a forgotten alley – someone is preparing something impossibly delicious to eat. Wander with me into the France of my memory and let’s cook and explore this cuisine together.
