WE run a COOKERY SCHOOL on our premises and cook for the public once a week at our famous "you look, we cook" evenings. We also run tailor made classes for spoused who have been abandoned for the golf course.
Our "cook and look" dinners on a Wednesday evening - the format is basically as follows : The guests are charged R220.00 per person for the meal: The guests arrive at 7:00 in the evening - bringing along their own wife and their own wine. No corkage charges at all.
Upon arrival guests are welcomed by our waiters (as we are frantically busy in the kitchen) and given appetizers to nibble on, as well as a "welcome drink" - at the moment a home made Limoncello - to warm them up on a cold Winter's evening, or cool them down on a hot summers evening.
At approximately 7:30 for 7:45 we welcome all our guests to the open-plan kitchen, where we give them a complete run-down about the dinner for the evening. Starters & main courses are prepared in full view of the guests as they congregate around the kitchen area, along with our famous joke telling a bit of Kitchen Theatre. After this guests return to their individual tables, laid up as per customer reservation, and the meal commences with a starter, followed by main course, dessert, coffee/ tea and biscuits to end the meal.
Everything edible is prepared in our kitchen - including the apperitif, as already mentioned.
All in all, it is an evening celebrating food, more food, fun, and of course, the guest's own choice of wines - which are sometimes dodgy, other times magnificent - all depending on individual taste of course!
The atmosphere is a party atmosphere, and the noise level is generally high and festive. Enjoyment of the evening is up to you. We would love to welcome you and look forward to a visit from you and whoever you wish to bring along wife, lover, mother in law.
We cater for any special requests, e.g vegetarians, gluten intolerant or any other food allergies. Please advise beforehand.
