Event Details

On Easter Monday, 2 April 2018, Lerato Umah-Shaylor, a food writer, TV chef and journalist will be hosting an immersive African Easter Feast & Dance.

“Join us for an explosion of flavours at our special Easter Harvest feast with live African salsa dance. This is one for lovers of culture, new adventures, and friendships!”

We will feast on sumptuous food inspired by fasting and feasting at Easter while being treated to stories of spring’s harvest through sensual African salsa. Our long table feasts are a wonderful marriage of cuisines, inspired by my African upbringing and seasonal British produce, cooked with wondrous spices.

As Lenten comes from Old English, meaning the arrival of the spring season, you will welcome this time of new life and rebirth with bountiful fruits, vegetables, legumes. At my supper club, I share food stories, and the inspiration behind the menu, which encourages an outpour of stories from others at the table.”
