In Africa we believe, we are all equal especially when we come together to share food around the same table.
I create a wonderful marriage of cuisines, inspired by my African upbringing and influences from the continent and beyond, often using local British produce, cooked with wondrous spices. My African feasts and cookery classes as seen on the BBC, The Evening Standard, Time Out London and more are well known for the seasonal changing menu and guaranteed explosion of flavours. In true African spirit, we feast on sharing plates at the center of the table. Vegetarians and vegans are most welcome as this is a feast for all. There are also vegan & vegetarian supper clubs, please see menus below. Book your tickets below and if multiple dates are available, please let me know your preferred date. If we are sold out and you will like to be on the waiting list for the next supper club, please fill out the form below. If you will like to join our cookery class supper club see more here. I look forward to sharing this adventure with you all and creating new traditions through our shared love for great food. Book your tickets soon as limited spaces are available.
See you at the table.

African Festive Feast in Brighton
Join us this festive season as I takeover the Old Albion in Hove for a pumpkin inspired feast. In true African spirit, we will feast on sharing plates at the center of the table. Pumpkins are a popular produce in Senegal and a much loved produce of the autumnal harvest in England. Expect vibrant flavours of autumnal organic and Sussex grown pumpkins, squash, kale and apples, with plantains and organic free range lamb cooked in wondrous African spices. This is a feast for all!
