LERATO’S AFRICAN SUPPER CLUB
Join us for an explosion of flavours at our monthly African feast.
In Africa we believe, we are all equal especially when we come together to share food around the same table.
At my dining experiences, we share food and create new friendships. 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. 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.
UP NEXT: Felabration at Prince of Peckham
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! Vegan and vegetarians food will be made available upon request. Limited seats are available and you can join us by booking your tickets here.
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.
Chop Chop Aubergines (v)
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.

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! Can’t recommend enough xxxx” – Antigone
