Lerato's Vegan & Vegetarian African Class, Sun 29th April

Tickets available here: https://leratofoods.com/products/contemporary-african-cookery-class

Love African food, longing to discover new and exciting flavours, or just need help with your jollof rice?

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. This class is plant-based and open to all.

Our cookery session 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, spices and unique African produce. 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, non sticky and well seasoned jollof rice you can be proud of and more. 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 your meal.


Included are welcome drinks, the use of aprons, all cooking equipment, ingredients and recipes of the day.
