West Africa Cooks are listing this event called OKELE London - Supperclub on 2019-05-18 19:00:00

Ōkēlē is very pleased to announce its second supper club will be taking place on May 18th in LONDON!

What is Ōkēlē?

Ōkēlē is an innovative dining concept by British Nigerian chef, cookbook author of 'Hibiscus' and The Observer Rising Star of Food 2017, Lopè Ariyo.

On top of popular foods reimagined, Ōkēlē aims to shine a new light on everyday dishes in West Africa, especially Nigerian cuisine. Òkèlè is a Yoruba word used to describe dishes made from tubers such as yam or cassava which are boiled, pounded down and then steamed with water. The West African answer to pasta if you will. To those unfamiliar with òkèlè dishes, it could also be described as a cross between a dumpling and polenta.

Our special evening will be held on the 18th of May where guests will be treated to a delectable three-course dinner.

I'm a traditional Nigerian, is this menu for me?

We encourage diners to come with an open mind and experience a new and joyful way of interpreting and enjoying Nigerian food.

I won't know anyone, can I still come?

We encourage diners to come alone as the event is intimate and you're more than likely to make friends on the day. :)

Will I leave feeling bloated?

No, although okeles are quite heavy meals traditionally, we have designed the menu in such a way that you can enjoy a 3-course menu and leave feeling satisfied and happy.

I have allergies/dietary requirements; can I still attend your event?

Unfortunately, we are not able to cater to any intolerances or allergies. Vegetarians are welcome - please leave a note/email the organisers .

Is there a refund policy?
