Overview
More
Stir Crazy is the oldest and only truly hands-on cooking school in Cape Town. The cooking school offers social and interactive gatherings where people can either get involved in a hands-on interactive cooking experience, or alternatively be hosted for a South African dinner at a local home, where they engage with the hosts over a tantalising and delicious meal. Cooking courses include South African cooking classes, and virtually every kind of cooking style you can imagine, from Creole to Cambodian, Indian to Asian. Your hosts are seasoned chefs who know the ins and outs of the culinary scene in Cape Town, and can also impart knowledge on locally produced fare and mini culinary excursions such as craft beers, wines, etc. We offer upmarket catering, private chef services and hosted dinners in Cape Town, as well as team building classes and corporate functions. Contact us for a quotation or further details on our services.
