Date: 3rd October 2017
I am thrilled to be invited to host a grand supper club at the uber cool Prince of Peckham. This celebration of African vibrancy and explosion of flavours is inspired by West African culture, especially imbibed in the likes of Afrobeat king, ‘Fela Anikulapo Kuti‘. Like his music, African food and culture has deeply influenced our world, in many ways than one, from music, fashion and food. This October, in the month of his birth, join us as we feast and dance to energic African vibrations. I will be cooking and dancing too!
See you at the table!
Plantain fritters with roasted Pepper Purée
Akara is a sumptuous West African street food made from black eyed beans. The yoruba women who sell them are known to call out, ‘Akaraje Akaraje! “Come and eat Akara”. Shakara in pidgin English is ‘to show off’. This version made with plantains, red chicory, black eyed beans & sweetcorn is both sumptuous and seasonal.
‘Chop Chop’ Chicken
Twice cooked chicken; roasted in mango & pepper puree, then smoked to finish.
Fried rice with turmeric, the season’s best heritage carrots & green beans. A Lagos party isn’t a party without jollof or fried rice.
Braised kale with mixed peppers and roasted shallots inspired by the Yoruba Efo typically made with scotch bonnets, wild spinach & African spice. Onyibo as mentioned in Fela’s 1975 track, ‘Mr Grammartologylisationalism Is the Boss’, means ‘white or light skinned person’. My parents call me ‘oyinbo’. A rather embarrassing nickname!
African ’Zobo’ Clementine
Poached clementine in hibiscus flower syrup
Vibrant, zesty & sweet with bitter West African dark chocolate. Not only inspired by the bitter sweet truths of Fela’s fight with his music, but also by Clement of Prince of Peckham.
Banana Fritters, Spiced Chocolate with Grains of Paradise
Sumptuous dessert from the bustling streets of Lagos paired with West African fair-trade cocoa
Rums and cocktails which POP are notorious for, as well as other drinks, will available to purchase at the bar.
