Supperclub in Sussex - Cooking The Books with Gilly & Lerato

Only 6 spaces left 
Join me for a fabulous Supperclub in Lewes (near Laughton) with award winning writer and podcast host Gilly Smith (of Cooking the books podcast) An Africana feast hosted in her beautiful eco modern home surrounded by nine acres of wild flower meadows and bluebell woods in a rewilded wonderland.

We will enjoy stories and plentiful food from my new cookbook AFRICANA, as you travel across the continent one dish at a time. With six double bedrooms in the house overlooking the meadow and another three in the barn you can also stay over and enjoy a lovely Sussex retreat to reconnect with nature.

Wonderful sounds from the table; of chatter, laughter, clinking cutlery and glasses while platters are passed back and forth. These are wonderful memories of our feasts and we look forward to many more celebrations!

Never been to a supperclub? It is typically a 'super' dinner party. At ours, I present the menu, inspiration behind each dish and tips for cooking your favourites at home, as we serve delicious nibbles and vibrant sharing plates on our long feasting tables. This is a great social event to share something unique with family, friends and new friends made at the table. You don't have to come with a partner as there will be plenty of friends to make, myself included.

Our menu is a marriage of flavours inspired by our family, local seasonal foods and vibrant flavours with heat from Africa, freshness & fragrance from the Mediterranean & the Middle East. Produce is locally sourced where possible, with herbs, edible flowers and fruits from the best farms in and around Sussex.

With vegans and vegetarians in the family, the menu is a feast for all with lots of plant-based options available.
