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 and anything in-between.
