1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Join chef, writer and African food devotee Lerato Umah-Shaylor on a West African adventure featuring wonderful produce from plantains to wondrous spices.
Lerato will welcome you with botanical cocktails of hibiscus flowers and prosecco served with canapés before sharing her secrets to cooking sumptuous plant-based feasts inspired by her African heritage.
Depending on seasonal and local availability, a typical menu will comprise a West African stew like groundnut stew or Senegalese Yassa, made with your own home-made roasted peanut (groundnut) butter, a jollof prepared using healthy British-grown quinoa as an alternative to rice, a whole roasted & spiced cauliflower and finished with a delicious banana fritter and spiced chocolate.
Bring your own bottle to enjoy with the feast at the end of this exciting hands-on class, where you will work in pairs to create your dishes. The class is plant-based and great for cooks from beginners to experts, leaving you inspired to add African vibrancy into your cooking.
Previous participants said: “Brilliant course! Lerato is a fantastic tutor.” “I will try all of the new recipes, haven’t cooked west African before.”
