Malva Pudding    

Thank you for all your love and support for my debut cookbook AFRICANA which has gone on to win a number of best book nods in The Telegraph, The Observer Food Monthly, The Guardian, Delicious Magazine, Waitrose Magazine & more including an Award at the Gourmand World Book Awards. I am thrilled to share book tour dates which include amazing events from talks & demos at bookstores to feasts across the country. Please click on each event below for relevant tickets links.

Africana is sold across the world from London to Kenya, South Africa to Australia. Please see list of online stores below or Google to find it in your country. If you would like AFRICANA in your local bookstore, please do call them up to ask for it. They will stock it if they know you want it.
