We have become known as one of the best value pop-up events where you can kick back and sample some of the best cuisine in Cape Town. Each month we host an exclusive pop-up dinner at Stir Crazy.  The evening is a social evening where you can come and watch a working kitchen where the chefs are plating a delicious dinner for you while you relax with a drink in your hand. 
The dinner is also the evening of a gala dinner for our Superyacht Culinary Course chefs to show off their plating and presentation skills and and to celebrate the end of their training, so you may see these budding chefs in action under the supervision of Brett Nussey, the school owner and head chef.

The dinner is hosted at the Stir Crazy cooking school a 5-course gourmet dinner. The school is not licensed so you are welcome to bring your own choice of drinks to the event.  There is no corkage fee.

We look forward to meeting you at this exclusive event.
