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, with roasted plantains and your own home-made roasted peanut (groundnut) butter, a jollof prepared using healthy British-grown quinoa as an alternative to rice and Banana Akara with Spiced Chocolate Sauce – Lerato’s take on the popular street food of banana fritters paired with her indulgent but non-traditional signature spiced chocolate sauce made using fairly-traded West African chocolate.
Bring your own bottle to enjoy with the feast at the end of this exciting hands-on class.
