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


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

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.


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.


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!

Recipe: How to make Healthy Plantain Chips

Try my simple recipe for healthy & perfectly crisp plantains chips. I enjoy making these in batches with different spices, storing them in glass jars (if I haven' t eaten them all...) and using them as croutons for soups and salads.
