I am an African cookery writer, teacher and alround feeder! I love bringing people together to share good food. After hosting my cooking show in Lagos 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 cooking from Africa and beyond using the best of British local produce. I host supper clubs with Wefifo at Waitrose, work with brands to produce recipes and cookery tutorials, I also rum a cookery school with classes 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!

Quarantine Supperclub - Senegalese Yassa

Lerato was a wonderful host - she was really chatty and helped us all cook at home during the lockdown. Both my husband and I enjoyed following along, chatting, cooking, substituting and tweaking bits and our Yassa was fantastic. We saw that some people complained a bit about doing it online, but we found it really straightforward - click the link and and we were in! People complaining about their own internet connection or Zoom, or their own cooking should be reviewing those things in a suitable place: their ISP, Zoom, or themselves. There were around 25 people in the class swapping bits of the recipe out and changing things according to we had in our cupboards that evening, and Lerato was approachable and easy to ask for advice on those substitutions, but at the end of the day it was our meal, and that's part of the joy of it - we revel in our ability to cook this dish, and we take some responsibility if we add so many chillies we can't eat it anymore.

Went ok but there seemed to be some technical problems and it was hard to hear host at times. Recipe was ok but didn't match the ingredients our host actuslly used quantity wise.

Excellent. Overcame some of the teething set up issues with a bit of banter. Showed plenty of patience to cater to such a diverse audience.
