Plant-based Moroccan Feasts with Lerato Umah-Shaylor

  Saturday 4 Apr 2020

  1:30 pm  - 5:30 pm

An explosion of flavours awaits you in this class led by chef, cookery writer and African food devotee Lerato Umah-Shaylor. Lerato will welcome you with orange and mint prosecco cocktails and canapes before she shares tips and techniques for this very hands-on class.

You will learn how to toast and grind north African spices to create your own ras-el-hanout spice mix and, depending on seasonal availability, produce dishes such as roasted baby aubergines, shakshuka (made with egg or aubergine), saffron couscous with chickpeas & lemon, heritage carrots with clementine & pomegranates and Moroccan spiced apple tart with almonds & date syrup.

Bring your own bottle to enjoy with the feast after you work in pairs to create a range of traditional and contemporary Moroccan cuisine. The class is plant based and great for most diets, from beginners to experts, leaving you inspired to add African vibrancy into your cooking.

Previous participants said: “Liked the engaging, hands-on with the chef. Good way to spend an afternoon – good food, good company.” “Built up my confidence! Will treat my family to a North African meal.”
