LERATO’S AFRICAN SPRING FEAST
23rd April 2017
Join us for an explosion of flavours at our heartwarming monthly African feast.
At our dining experiences, we share food and create new friendships in an intimate setting. I create a wonderful marriage of cuisines, inspired by my African upbringing, with global influences as seen in my food column in the Guardian Nigeria, and recipes contributed to the BBC. The menu is full of indulgence and a celebration of African provenance and also lovely local British produce, cooked with wondrous spices. In true African spirit, we feast on sharing plates at the center of the table. The menu always changes with the season. I will share the final menu a few days before our event. With vegans in the family, the menu is a feast for all. If this is sold out and you will like to be on the waiting list for the next, please fill out the form below. 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.

A marriage of the much-loved North African recipe of baked tomatoes, onions, mixed peppers with West African native plantains (with or without free range eggs poached on top)
Homemade Crusty Thyme Loaf
Suya Spice Roasted Aubergines & Vine Tomatoes
With my homemade blend of suya, a nomadic spice blend, popular in Nigeran roasts.
