Review by Lorraine Pascale -

LynnTrapano from Visit Brighton/ Brighton Tourism - “I was organising a networking dinner and was looking for something that was informal but a bit different, as the majority of people attending didn’t know each other. My colleague had been to one of Lerato’s Supper Clubs and suggested this format would work for my dinner. Liaising with Lerato on the run-up to the event was a joy as she was always quick in coming back to my questions and readily available. The actual evening was a great success and everyone was very complimentary about the food and the general structure of the evening – the right combination of special but relaxed. Lerato is a fantastic hostess and is proactive about answering any questions about her lovely food. It’s an experience rather than just a meal.”

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! Cant recommend enough xxxx" - Antigone

"Thank you for organising a lovely evening with really tasty food!! I really enjoyed the spices, flavours and great company...Look forward to more dinners!" - Manuela

"A wonderful evening. Great to try a different range of foods and flavours. The Tempest Inn made for an ideal location, nice and intimate. Lerato and Thurston were so lovely and accommodating - catering to my every vegan need! And with a great bunch of ladies for company what more could I ask for. I look forward to booking on to future events by Lerato as soon as possible!" - Emma

"What a lovely evening! good venue; lovely people and interesting food, just what was needed for a cold November evening..." - Amber

"Fantastic! Thoroughly enjoy last night and it's good to showcase some African cuisine to non-Africans. Keep up your good work." - Elizabeth
