Cooking Classes

Johannesburg Cooking classes

Di Bibby Cooking ClassesEach month we explore exciting new culinary flavours from around the world from Middle Eastern, Turkish, Italian and Indian. Most often we will start with traditional breads that reflect each specific cultures and cuisines. From there, it’s all about delectable sides, mains and dessert, of course. Expect exuberantly colourful food with vibrant flavours that celebrate seasonal produce. Flecked in between we will explore Baking with healthy alternatives, Vegan and Vegetarian food. There’s a strong focus on delicious and doable ways of including more plant-based meals into everyday cooking.

The cooking classes are intimate and relaxed. After a participative cook, we gather around the table to share in good food and great conversation.
