I am an African cookery writer, teacher and alround feeder! After hosting my cooking show in Nigeria and writing a column in the Guardian, I went on to host supper clubs where I have the privilege of sharing food with the public. My feasts are fabulously fun and filled with inspired African cooking with the best of British local produce. I host supper clubs with Wefifo at Waitrose, touring the country with vibrant African food and stories, I also teach my recipes at my cookery school in London and the South East. Follow my WEFIFO profile for updates on forthcoming supper clubs and cookery classes in London and Sussex. You can also catch me on BBC Sussex & Surrey sharing recipes. I look forward to hosting you soon and sharing great food together! See you at the table!

Lerato's African Feasts at Waitrose

Lerato was an excellent host. Very professional and friendly. She really interacted with the guests and explained each course and meal thoroughly. I really enjoyed the evening and the food. I would definitely attend another evening hosted by Lerato.

Lerato's African Feasts at Waitrose

There was nothing to fault. Lerato was a superb host, friendly and open. The food was very, very good indeed. I did have reservations about Waitrose as a venue, but it worked well. A lovely evening and an event I'd book again.

Lerato's African Feasts at Waitrose

One of the best We Fi Fo events I have attended; fantastic food - delicious combinations with lots of vegetables and not too spicy, melt in the mouth lamb and a gorgeous sticky pudding. Wonderful host who made the evening flow plus a great group of people from all walks of life. A very happy and relaxed evening, helped by the generous servings of wine from Waitrose. Everyone around me was new to We Fi Fo but keen to experience more events.

A West African Feast at Waitrose

Lerato was just a perfect hostess. We had a great evening, definitely worth the journey from Haslemere. We hope to go to another one in the future.
