What guests & customers have said;
“I have attended one of Lerato's cookery courses, and a couple of her supper clubs, and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is warm, engaging and welcoming, as well as an amazing cook and gifted teacher, and I'm very much looking to attending more activities at her cookery school in 2020.” Susan from Brighton 
“It is such a relief to find a local cookery school for children that teaches them how to cook and cooking skills, we have been looking for years. The classes are so much fun, well structured and enjoyed by all. As a parent It is great to watch and the time goes by so quickly. Thanks Lerato!” Leigh from Heathfield 
“Great evening at Waitrose, Hove. Lerato's food was lovely, spicy but not overpowering and very tasty. A very enjoyable experience.” Chris B”
