Private Virtual Masterclass with Lerato


Every Sunday at 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm BST 


£350 per household/screen, plus £50 per additional household/screen. 

Embark on a culinary journey with Lerato, award-winning author of Africana, and experience remarkable flavours from across the continent with heartwarming stories and recipes for inspired home cooking. From the comfort of your home, indulge in an immersive and entertaining cookery experience at our virtual table. 

You can choose to focus on a particular region, style or type of dishes in your private class, and a menu will be created for you. In your private masterclass, Lerato will show you how spices can turn even the simplest dishes into flavourful delights. From fragrant vanilla to everyday favourites like turmeric, cumin, and coriander, discover her spice-filled world and learn how to shop and store a treasured collection. 

With over 40 plant recipes in AFRICANA, you will learn to harness the power of greens, their natural flavours and the use of spices to elevate the most simple of vegetables. Lerato’s Suya Cauliflower was named an Observer Food Monthly Best Recipe for a reason. You will learn to cook inspiring recipes from Africana, from modern classics, and inventive recipes, to new and exclusive recipes being developed by Lerato.

Lerato's classes are not only entertaining, she is able to bring people together creating a strong sense of community. Like in her book, she holds your hand as you cook and travel across the continent together, leaving you inspired and empowered to create incredible flavours at home.
