Learn to Cook Like a Pro with Cape Town’s Best Chefs

Learn to Cook Like a Pro with Cape Town’s Best Chefs

No-pressure, fun-filled cooking courses.

Owner and self-taught chef Denise Levy invites you into the heart of her Sea Point home – her kitchen – to learn a thing or two about popular global cuisines. To complement her own amassed travel experiences and culinary knowledge, Denise is joined in the kitchen by the likes of Liam Tomlin (her own food hero); chef-patron of Riverine Rabbit, Ash Heeger; private chef Arabella Parkinson; and 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 these classes concept but, importantly, these classes incorporate a rather unique and non-intimidating free-style approach. You can choose to get stuck into preparing a range of delicious dishes, under the watchful eye of the chef, 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 entirely yours.

The gift that keeps on giving

These courses also make 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.)
