I'm Lerato which means 'Passion' in southern African Sotho language. I love cooking with seasonal produce, using the best of British and a marriage of flavours from Africa, the Mediterranean and beyond. I used to be a tv chef in Nigeria and wrote food columns, now I run Lerato Cookery School & Kitchen in London & the South East. A cookery school to ignite your passion for food and cooking seasonal & sumptuous food. My long table feasts and cookery are heart-warming & enjoyable experiences for culinary inspiration and exploration. I us frequently share recipes on BBC radio and I host unique events from Yoga & Afternoon Tea with my yoga instructor, Gourmet Chocolate Truffle Making with West African cocoa and immersive superclubs with music & dance.
