Love to learn to cook food with spectacular flavour?

Join Lerato on an enchanting journey across Africa, at her immersive cookery classes in London. As a food writer and leading voice in African cooking, she shares her secrets to cooking vibrant and sumptuous feasts from Africa and its diaspora – from Morocco to Mozambique, Senegal to Seychelles, and Lagos to London. With both traditional and contemporary recipes, you can recreate time and again, bringing African sunshine to your home.   

Travel Across Africa, One Dish at a Time

Master the famous Jollof, perfect cooking plantains, marvel at North African feasts, Sumptuous Ethiopian Stews, East African & South African curries and much more.

With seasonal, local ingredients and carefully sourced spices and African superfoods, you will be inspired to explore the multiplicity and richness of this diverse cuisine. 

After the success of her supper clubs, in 2017 Lerato launched the cookery school to bring African flavours into mainstream cooking. The cookery classes are inclusive, welcoming most diets and including lots of plant-based and vegan-loving choices.      

Whether you are a professional, enthusiastic home cook or a novice, you will enjoy a wonderfully immersive experience with tons of inspiration to maximise flavour in your cooking.

"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."

Imperial College London - AGE Department

"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."

Celebrity Chef - Lorraine Pascale


"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 it. Thank you again Lerato!"
