Event Details

Love African food, longing to discover new and exciting flavours, or just want to learn to perfect the jollof? Join us for a culinary adventure as I share my secrets to cooking vibrant, sumptuous and healthy feasts with seasonal produce inspired by cuisine from Africa, with recipes you can easily recreate at home.

Our cookery session and dinner party will start with cocktails and canapes as you get to know your fellow cooks, followed by an introduction to African cooking, the regional inspirations for recipes on the menu, spices and unique African produce. I will share my secrets to cooking healthy and sumptuous African food. You will learn to apply traditional African recipes to modern cooking using seasonal produce.

My cookery class is very hands-on, as we peel, chop and cook together. After cooking, you will sit to enjoy your meal together on one feasting table. Feel free to bring your favourite drinks to enjoy!
