In line with a well-known saying, more than half of respondents surveyed in a study of 2’000 people said they agreed with the proverb ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ – 57% of women and 62% of men said they agreed when asked if this applies to them. Almost 3 out of 5 people, from that same study, indicated that ‘eating well’ may lift their spirits, and more than a third reported that some of their most prized memories involve food. A further 27% identify as ‘foodies’, and 24% consider themselves ‘feeders’.


And there can be nothing more loving and delicious than a home-cooked meal or something sweet. So why not take your sweetheart on the ultimate romantic night out, as you craft your very own meal together at The Cookery and then finish off the night with a delectable selection from Sally Williams, a proudly South African confectionery brand, that specialises in delectable nougat, Turkish Delight and Belgian Chocolate with roasted nougat nibs.

Paul Maciel, also known as The Secret Jozi Chef, has been working in the food business for more than 20 years. He began by opening the acclaimed restaurant Pronto before moving on to establish the wildly popular social cooking space The Cookery in Johannesburg. Paul thinks that if you enjoy eating good cuisine, you can definitely make amazing food because cooking is a natural process.


Paul, who is of Luso Indian descent, has many fond memories involving food, particularly those involving his mother, grandmother, and aunts (as well as his dad, of course), who were always great at creating a wonderful, joyful environment where the sharing of culinary knowledge was almost as important as the food itself. The Cookery offers a range of classes from a chance to discover and master some beloved and classic Greek recipes to dishes that make Turkish food so popular. If Tacos & Tequila are more your thing, there’s a class for that too!
