Enjoy a festive feast with family, friends & food lovers from across the world
Wonderful sounds from the table; of chatter, laughter, often of the roaring kind, 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 with you all!
Join me for my festive annual Christmas feasts inspired by flavours from Africa and beyond. I have designed a festive menu with sweetness, spice and all things nice to inspire you to cook new and exciting dishes to add to your menu this year.
It's the most wonderful time of the year and after such a trying year, we deserve to feast to our heart's content and be merry. We may not be able to sit for our usual Christmas supperclub, but we can cook together and enjoy each other's company virtually and from anywhere in the world.
I'll be cooking from our home on the Sussex coast in England and joining you all from all over the world. Upon booking your place, ingredients, a shopping and equipment list will be sent to you alongside our private Zoom login details.
Sumptuous canapes and dips to get the party started
