Interactive Cooking Classes with Ginger & Lime

Interactive Cooking Classes with Ginger & Lime

A no-pressure cooking course that’s interactive and fun, guided by self-taught chef Denise Levy and guest food experts.

Owner and self-taught chef Denise Levy invites you into the heart of her home – her kitchen – to learn a thing or two about popular global cuisines. To complement her own amassed travel experiences and culinary knowledge, chef Denise will be joined in the kitchen by the likes of Liam Tomlin (her own food hero), Thali head chef, John van Zyl, private chef Arabella Parkinson and renowned SA chef and cookbook author, Jason Whitehead, to name a few. The courses include a range of different cuisines – from Asian to Mediterranean and, of course, local SA fare.

Calling all passionate foodies

Bonding with friends, family and other passionate foodies while cooking and eating is the essence of Ginger & Lime’s concept, but importantly, Denise’s classes incorporate a rather unique and nonintimidating free-style approach. You can choose to get stuck into preparing a range of delicious dishes, under the watchful eye of Denise and her guest chefs, stand back and watch in wonder, or recline with a glass of wine, as you strike up a conversation with fellow guests – the choice is yours entirely.

The gift that keeps on giving

What’s more, these courses also make for wonderful gifts, where the recipient(s) can enjoy shared experiences with friends and simultaneously hone their culinary skills. (Ginger & Lime also hosts courses for private functions such as parties, corporate workshops, bachelorette parties, afternoon tea, and many more.)
