The Steyns Culinary School, situated in Hatfield, Pretoria, is an unique educational establishment in that it endeavours to create opportunities for any person with a love for good food to come and learn how to cook in a hands-on-kitchen.
There are many demonstration kitchens in Gauteng, but few, if any, hands-on-kitchens where the students are able to learn by experience.
In this kitchen, Maritha Steyn will demonstrate and guide the students in acquiring the necessary know-how in order to master the most basic cooking skills, as well as more advanced techniques.
Who are these courses for? In the first place courses will be presented for any person who loves cooking, or has a desire to learn how to cook.
Corporate teambuilding-through-cooking evenings; the training of prospective au pairs; the refining of housewives cooking abilities; the empowerment of unskilled persons; hobby cooking evenings; food-from-around-the-globe courses are all presented here. Students, teens and even children are also catered for.
