Join me in the kitchen for a culinary adventure as I share my secrets to cooking vibrant and sumptuous feasts from West African to Moroccan with seasonal produce inspired by cuisine from Africa and beyond that, you can easily recreate at home.

"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. Thank you again Lerato!"
