FOOD WITH PASSION & COMPASSION

LERATO ~ PASSION / LOVE IN SOTHO SOUTHERN AFRICAN LANGUAGE

Hi, I’m Lerato. I love to share rooted food that celebrates culture and identity from Africa and beyond, thoughtful food with a greater purpose other than nourishment. My recipes are spice filled, inventive yet deeply inspired and wholesome - most importantly delicious and achievable. Our love for food is a powerful force for good, breaking down barriers and bringing all people together. We have been on an incredible journey from my first cookery show aired across Africa to growing a community through our supper clubs, pop up collaborations, cookery classes in Sussex, London and online. Our products celebrate our purpose to promote ethical and sustainable foods while our community work empowers and inspires vibrant cooking and conviviality in both adults and children. Thank you for being here and embarking on this beautiful journey with me and I look forward to sharing inspiring food with you.

TESTIMONIALS

Cooking Class & Dinner for SHELL

It was a pleasure to meet you, and everyone is still commenting on how great our cookery class and dinner was.

Do give Lerato’s Supper club a try. She does get sold out pretty quickly so have a look at her website for regular updates. I really enjoyed the experience of trying new food with interesting people in new surroundings. Read full review here

Supperclub at Waitrose with Wefifo

She created a vibrant atmosphere and was welcoming and friendly. An excellent night was had by all with delicious food and new flavours for me and my partner.

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.

Supperclub  in Brighton

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

Elizabeth

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 wonderful Sunday afternoon well spent! The Food tasted divine and the preparation and cooking part was very enjoyable. I went alone and met some lovely people! I look forward to sharing the recipes with friends and family (who by the way are already lining up for me to make at home after seeing photos I shared). Would highly recommend. Thank you again Lerato!
