About Me

I'm in my 30s
Dietary requirements
I am: Always hungry

I'd rather not eat: Oysters
I'd rather eat: Ethically sourced food, fair trade
Sharing food with others is all I dream of, and by hosting supper clubs and cookery classes, I live my dream day after day! I am an African food writer on a mission to feed all the wonders of African culture and food with contemporary African recipes as seen in my Guardian Ng food column and recipes I contribute to the BBC. My supper clubs and pop ups have been featured on the BBC, Time Out London, The Evening Standard... I am deeply influenced by both my African heritage and British family life in Sussex. After hosting cooking shows aired across Africa, I enjoy exploring and sharing the multiplicity and diversity of African food, while using seasonal British produce at cookery classes, events, and talks across the country. Join me at our enchanting suppers, African Afternoon Teas and lovely weekend roasts in London and Brighton for a unique adventure of African food & culture.

Yoga in a Countryside Yurt

I enjoyed the social side of this workshop and the food and eating together was good. However, I think there were too many of us in the yurt and I did not enjoy the yoga because of this. I couldn't even lie comfortably in shivansana at the end because we were too close to each other on our mats. I would not choose to come to another yoga workshop at the yurt where so many people attend. I attended another of Eva's workshops a few months ago and the spacing was fine and I really enjoyed the workshop. So feel disappointed in the yoga part of yesterday's workshop - also for my student because this was her first experience of yoga. The vibe and the people were lovely, however.
