A Food Jam started as a party where cooking and eating is only half the fun.

The concept of Food Jams was developed whilst Jade was studying jazz.  Aware that the best way to learn was to jam with other musicians at night – often with musicians she didn’t know or hadn’t met before coming together on stage, these nights would always end with a happy heart and great hunger.  Her friends, aware of her love for the kitchen, started asking her to teach them to cook.  She said ‘let’s jam together, using food instead of music'. She wrote up recipes & invited them to her parent's kitchen.  The first one was on the 4th of February 2010 and she has been jamming ever since.’

Over the past 11 years, Jade & her team have hosted any celebration you can think of - from solo-travellers visiting Cape Town to 200 conference-goers simultaneous, in pop-up venues and the much-loved Food Jams' kitchens.
