  Saturday 30 May 2020

  4:30 pm  - 6:30 pm

Join chef, writer and African food devotee Lerato Umah-Shaylor on a West African adventure featuring wonderful produce and wondrous spices.

Your menu includes:

  • Senegalese Yassa stew – be transported to the shores of Senegal by learning to cook this vibrant and zesty dish with caramelised onions, dijon, lemon and fish (or vegetarian / vegan alternative)
  • Traditional jollof prepared using healthy British-grown quinoa as an alternative to rice.

The class is great for cooks of all levels, from beginners to experts, leaving you inspired to add African vibrancy into your cooking. Guests are encouraged to use what they have and Lerato will guide you through customising your dish with unique ingredients you may already have at home.

Previous participants said: “Brilliant course! Lerato is a fantastic tutor.” “I will try all of the new recipes, haven’t cooked west African before.”
