4. The Cookery

The Cookery, one of the top restaurants in Randburg, was established by Paul Maciel, eccentrically known as The Secret Jozi Chef.

If you jump quickly, you can also be slotted into one of these coveted events or opt for a social class hosted during the week. The Cookery’s workshops are held at Craighall Park, equipped with a world-class multipurpose kitchen.
