Join us in a culinary adventure as I share my secrets to cooking vibrant, healthy and sumptuous feasts with seasonal produce inspired by cuisine from Africa and beyond that, you can easily recreate at home.

Our cookery session and dinner will start with cocktails and canapés as you get to know your fellow cooks, followed by an introduction to our menu, the regional inspirations for recipes on the menu, spices and unique African produce. Be prepared for a fun and very hands-on session, as we peel, chop and cook together. After cooking, you will sit to enjoy your meal together on one feasting table.

Feel free to bring your favourite drinks to enjoy!
