Food Jams are social gatherings in which eating food is only half the fun. Participants are paired up, preferably with strangers, and each team is given a portion of the meal to prepare and invited to follow the recipe, although participants are usually encouraged to improvise.

The concept was started by Jade de Waal as an excuse to bring a group of friends together in her favourite place, the kitchen.

Over the past seven years, Food Jams has grown into a business that encompasses all of Jade’s food-related projects, from stalls at markets, food-inspired art installations and exhibitions, online video cooking tutorials, cookbooks and all sorts of food-related content in the form of videos, photography and finally our website.

    Thank you FoodJams Team- an incredible overall experience. The service was absolutely incredible- what a hospitable and beautiful team. The food was delicious though I understand loadshedding caused 1 or 2 delays :) Loved the space, just magical atmosphere. Would love for the kitchen team to be a little quieter during speeches. We will 100

    What a fun, relaxed, interactive afternoon with work collegues. A perfect platform to have people from every rank of business collectively conjuring up culinary master pieces. Will jump at the opportunity to do this again.

    This was the third time I have done Food Jams and they just never disappoint! Jade and her team goes out of their way to make the experience magical. We had load shedding on Friday and switched to a candle light dinner with amazing food and company (luckily our food was all done before the power went out)! Thanks Food Jams team! You really are a very patient, fun and super helpful team who have helped us throughout the night! We had tons of fun and you were such a big part of this!
