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.

Lynsey

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

Celebrity Chef - Lorraine Pascale

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. 

Jill

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.

Antigone

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.

Antigone

So much fun. Lerato was wonderful and the food was delicious! Thank you

Olivia Edkina

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!
