7-course sharing plates full of African sunshine and spice at my monthly London Supper Club.
I am so excited its summer and my birthday month this joyous June! From hosting supper clubs to sleepless nights obsessing over the perfect seasonal menu, meticulous planning and finally sharing with you all makes each event a wonderful celebration, one as fulfilling as cutting a giant birthday cake with family and friends!
Our menu is vibrant with jollof quinoa – a delightful nod to the popular West African jollof rice, a trio of roasts with chicken and leg of lamb, sumptuous suya roasted aubergines with vine tomatoes, cooked in a marinade of mangoes and scotch bonnets for our supper club favourites like braised kale, and spiced chocolate with desserts of summer.
At our supper club, I present the menu for the day and share my inspiration behind each dish. We dine together at a long table, sharing food and experiences to the tunes of eclectic African music. There will be live African drums, so come ready to feast as we celebrate summer!
See the full menu below and grab your seats before they sell out! Our supper club will take place in Angel. Full address will be shared with booked guests.

Really good food and great people. Definitely a lovely Sunday afternoon. I strongly recommend it. – Chantal
“We had the absolute joy of eating Lerato’s food at a Supper club in Brighton – what an experience! The food was absolutely like nothing we’ve ever had before, beautiful ingredients served in creative ways, so flavoursome and filling! A highlight for us was the fact that it was all vegan friendly and any substitutions made were made just as thoughtfully as anyone else’s meal. The vegan chocolate cake pudding was just absolute magic!! Apart from the food being literally one of the best meals we’re ever had, the whole set up was beautiful. Sitting round a table sharing food together, meeting new people and best of all, having the chef herself come and join us in between cooking chatting and telling us about her food, the inspirations etc. Thank you for such a fantastic evening, you’ve inspired us to have a go at making more African inspired food at home! Cant recommend enough xxxx” – Antigone

“A wonderful evening. Great to try a different range of foods and flavours. 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!” – Emma
