Join me for an explosion of flavours at my mouth-watering African feasts every month in London.

At my supper clubs, you will share food and create new friendships in an intimate setting where in true African spirit we all feast on sharing plates served at the centre of the table. Expect a marriage of traditional African cuisines and street foods I grew up with and culinary influences from around the world as seen in my monthly food column in The Guardian Nigeria and my recipes broadcast on BBC Sussex & Surrey. The menu is plant-based - perfect for both vegans and vegetarians - and is full of indulgence as we celebrate African ingredients & recipes, and lovely local British produce with legumes, vegetables, and puddings cooked with wondrous spices.

Book your tickets now as limited seats are available - this is one for lovers of culture, new adventures, and new friendships! 

If we are sold out and you will like to be on the RSVP list for my next supper club please fill out the form below. Over the course of the year my menus always change with the seasons. I will share the final menu a few days before my event. I look forward to sharing this adventure with you all and creating new traditions through our shared love for great food!

See you at the table,

Lerato. x

What's been said about Wild Africa...

We had the absolute joy of eating Lerato’s food at a Supper club in Brighton – what an experience! The food was absolutely like nothing we’ve ever had before, beautiful ingredients served in creative ways, so flavoursome and filling! A highlight for us was the fact that it was all vegan friendly and any substitutions made were made just as thoughtfully as anyone else’s meal. The vegan chocolate cake pudding was just absolute magic!! Apart from the food being literally one of the best meals we’re ever had, the whole set up was beautiful. Sitting round a table sharing food together, meeting new people and best of all, having the chef herself come and join us in between cooking chatting and telling us about her food, the inspirations etc.

Thank you for such a fantastic evening, you’ve inspired us to have a go at making more African inspired food at home! Can't recommend enough xxxx - Antigone

"Thank you for organising a lovely evening with really tasty food!! I really enjoyed the spices, flavours and great company...Look forward to more dinners!" - Manuela

"A wonderful evening. Great to try a different range of foods and flavours. The Tempest Inn made for an ideal location, nice and intimate. Lerato and Thurston were so lovely and accommodating - catering to my every vegan need! And with a great bunch of ladies for company what more could I ask for. I look forward to booking on to future events by Lerato as soon as possible!" - Emma

"What a lovely evening! good venue; lovely people and interesting food, just what was needed for a cold November evening..." - Amber
