Love African food, longing to discover new and exciting flavours, or just need help with mastering the perfect jollof, suya and groundnut stew?

Join me in my kitchen for a culinary adventure as I share my secrets to cooking vibrant and sumptuous feasts with seasonal produce inspired by cuisine from Africa and beyond that you can easily recreate at home.

Our cookery class/dinner party will start with cocktails as you get to know your fellow cooks, followed by an introduction to African cooking, the regional inspirations for recipes on the menu, how to use spices to elevate your cooking and how to incorporate unique African produce in your cooking.

I will share my secrets to some of your favourites at my supper clubs such as the much-loved suya aubergines with nomadic suya spice mix, an indulgent groundnut stew and jollof quinoa you can be proud.

See the full menu below.

My cookery class is very hands-on, as we peel, chop and cook together. After cooking, you will sit to enjoy a long table feast of your wonderful creation with wine to match our dinner party. There is a minimum of 8 and maximum of 15 in the kitchen. 


Botanical Cocktails

BYOB - You can come along with your favourite drinks.

Limited spaces are available for each class to ensure a bespoke lesson so it's a good idea to book early before they sell out.

"A wonderful evening. Great to try a different range of foods and flavours. The Tempest Inn made for an ideal location, nice and intimate. Lerato and Thurston were so lovely and accommodating - catering to my every vegan need! And with a great bunch of ladies for company what more could I ask for. I look forward to booking on to future events by Lerato as soon as possible!" - Emm
