Leopard’s Leap’s exciting cooking classes are the ideal way for passionate home cooks and aspirant chefs to fine tune their culinary skills and add some variety to their tables. Staying seasonal and relevant, the programme covers a wide spectrum of cooking styles and food types.
In-house chef, Pieter de Jager, responsible for the delectable food offering at Leopard’s Leap will be sharing recipes and tips for an array of cooking methods, while popular chefs and food-enthusiasts will regularly feature in the exciting upcoming programme.
Each class repeats to offer a morning class with lunch or evening class with dinner. Expect the chef to share techniques and cooking methods for each recipe, but also general cooking tips and interesting facts about the food and their origin.
Classes take approximately three hours and are presented from the state of the art and exceptionally-equipped kitchen. Classes can accommodate twenty-two enthusiasts at individual cooking stations with their own stove and utensils. The chef’s every move can be followed on big screen television sets while printed recipes served as guidance on the day and when practicing the newly acquired skills at home.
After a busy cooking session, students are invited to relax and indulge in their own cooking-crafts – all beautifully paired by Leopard’s Leap wines as selected and recommended by Leopard’s Leap Cellar Master, Eugene van Zyl.
Reservations are essential and should be made at least a week in advance at +27 (0)21 876 8002 or firstname.lastname@example.org
