Sharon varies her courses with themes and seasons. She also accommodates corporates and designs custom menus for team-building which cater up to 50 people. Working from home, Sharon’s school is professional yet personal set in a beautiful garden.

In South Africa where braaing is more of a religion than a pastime, firing up the perfect coals and braaing the most flavourful meat, fish or vegetables is not an activity,  it’s something of an artform.  Braaing can range from simply putting a piece of wors on the braai grid and eating it directly off the fire or to a truly Gourmet Braai Experience.
