Bonjour and Welcome to our Waka

Team Building ” Le KIWI Chef CHALLENGE”
A great way to turn-up the heat and observe who thrives under pressure!

A cooking challenge with a competitive edge designed to get your team thinking and working together. For this event your group will be split into   teams that will cook against the clock, trying to out-do their cooking   colleagues by preparing the tastiest and most professionally presented   dishes. This class is a great way to bring new teams together, revitalize existing bonds or just have a cook-off between friends to decide who the next Le KIWI Chef really is!

For Le KIWI Chef CHALLENGE, Your group is split into smaller teams to help the competitive spirit. After an introduction and briefing from Maurice and Stephen (the Master Chefs!), we will then start the main exercise. The delicious three course meal will be thematic e.g. Parisian Bistro, French Provencial,Spanish Tapas etc. Depending on the time frame we will:

Give each team a core ingredient (Meat/Fish) and also access to a very extensive store cupboard of fresh, dried and dairy ingredients, from which they construct an exciting three course gourmet meal in a strict time frame. The group then shares the whole meal (Entrée,Main,Dessert). A winning team is chosen by us and reasons given. The most important criteria used is “Teamwork”.

- All equipment and kitchen wear are provided by us on the day.
- Also included are all ingredients, course folders and course certificate.

- A wonderful French cocktail/Aperitif Kir is offered upon arrival.

I would love to entertain you and share my passion for the best of French cuisine and culture.


My  French Cooking Classes are a culinary playground, a place for amateur cooks, the curious and those who simply want to learn, explore, and who knows unleash their inner chef.

These are lively hands on cooking classes where you will be inspired with “sensationale” traditional dishes, become culturally enriched as you take a journey in the land of beauty and romance, learn tips and techniques to add to your repertoire, plus some conversational French to top it all off. Oui? Oui!

Born out of a passion for delicious food we will focus on popular French regional cuisines and Parisian Bistrot dishes as well as basic skill sets for ingredient-focused cooking.

The cooking classes will be easy going ,lots of fun and laughter …. hands-on  designed to walk you through each step towards crafting a complete dish.

Times and places will be announced.

So what are you waiting for ?

…..   Get your apron on and let’s have fun!


A Bientot   see you soon!


Chef Stephen
