Kind words from our community
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.
We had an absolutely fantastic experience with Lerato, she is an excellent teacher. The food served was out of this world! She breathed life into what would have been a rather corporate affair and we now have wonderful memories of the day.
It was a pleasure to meet you, and everyone is still commenting on how great our cookery class and dinner was.
