Both two-hour masterclasses will take place on The Private Hotel School campus from 6 to 8pm, with the Chicken Masterclass happening on Tuesday, 20 August 2019 and the Dessert Degustation Masterclass taking place on Thursday, 22 August 2019.

In the Chicken Masterclass, Ungermann will demonstrate how to break down a chicken and use every single piece of the bird and those taking part will then be shown how to make three chicken dishes – Chicken Liver Parfait with Rosemary and Smoked Bacon (starter), Deconstructed Chicken Caesar Salad (entrée) and Chicken with Black Garlic Asparagus (mains).

And, because it just wouldn’t be the same without a dessert from the ‘King of Ice Cream’, Ungermann will also throw in a how-to-make his amazing Vanilla Bayleaf Ice Cream with Pumpkin and Dutch Spice.

Dessert Degustation Masterclass

For those more interested in something entirely sweet, Ungerman’s Dessert Degustation Masterclass is a must and the masterchef will provide tips, tricks and hacks regarding everything to do with desserts.

For starters Ungermann will do a step-by-step guide to making Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream with Goat’s Cheese and Basil. This will be followed by his Layer Dutch Spice Cake and then his Deconstructed Carrot Cake and finally his Forest Log LAW Dark Chocolate and Truffle.

Says Ungermann: “These masterclasses will give amateur chefs some excellent insight into creating simple yet mouth-watering dishes as well as cool tips and tricks along with a delicious four course degustation to enjoy with me afterwards.”

Tickets for the Ben Ungermann Masterclasses cost R580 per person and include all the ingredients as well as a sit down with Ungermann at the end of the class to enjoy the meal or desserts prepared.
