Customised Culinary Lessons

Cooking Up A Storm specializes in customised on-site culinary lessons for individuals. The lessons take place in your own kitchen which is obviously a familiar environment.  The lessons are suitable for beginners, intermediate or advanced cooks – no experience required. Also available for domestic workers, house keepers, nanny’s and kitchen staff.

The lessons are customised to your requirements, i.e. it is adapted to the level and pace determined by you or your staff. You can specify what types of dishes you would like to learn to cook, i.e. a complete meal (starter, main course and dessert) or you could focus on specific dishes, cuisines, topics or even cooking techniques. Choose from my library of cuisines and themes or suggest your own. You can learn to make dishes from scratch or to “cheat” with ready-made ingredients – the possibilities are endless!

When you book four lessons, you will receive a manual that covers topics such as Food Safety, Kitchen Safety, Kitchen Hygiene, Food Storing and much more! The manual can be used as a reference guide in the kitchen.

I am based in Johannesburg, but I am happy to venture further afield!
